Sort of...  Art's talking about Business purchases.  In actual fact, at the
Business part of the site, _every_ company sees a slightly different
website - and hardware available to one company may not be available to
another.  I'm sure Art could go to the same site as you, but he wouldn't
get the same deal he gets for company purchases (which is sometimes no deal
at all - I've heard people complaining that the government standing offer
for monitors only allows purchasers to pay about 50% more for the monitor
than they could pay by walking into a Future Shop or Best Buy) - and they
can't have a 22" LCD at all.
