2-3 years old is firmly inside the Conroe era (started what? mid 2006?). Perhaps a bunch of E6300's and E6400's I'm thinking. For now, I don't have to worry about electricity costs. That'll become an issue in as little as a few months or as long as a year and a few months (if I move from dorms to apartments)

My example was installing computers in late 2005 that were obsolete before being installed. These were Pentium 4s with 256MB of RAM (yes, the 256MB of RAM was an upgrade and we had to pay for it!) and the computers were manufactured mid 2002.
As much as I want to see dual core conroe's (even better if it was quad core)for sale for cheap, I'm fully expecting Pentium 4s (possibly without HT!) being offered.
NMCI rollout actually... but then when I transferred to commands that were not part of the NMCI network they had the exact same issues.
A lot of places bought those fleet machines.
