Cheapest computers there are?

Hey there,

I'm looking for the cheapest possible solution to buy 4-5 working laptops, if possible locally. The best deal I have found so far is 3 for kinda crap laptops without HDDs for 66$ on ebay, but with shipping it bumps it to 110$.....

I don't consider myself particularly tech savvy (albeit savvy enough to load up Ubuntu from a USB or CD), but I'm willing to learn.

Thanks y'all. Merry Christmas, happy new year.
