Try these:
Best Buy
Circuit City
Office Depot
Radio Shack
Your local new and used computer store and repair shop

Don't rely on sales persons to tell you what they have or don't have,
especially over the phone.  Unfortunately, they usually don't know, and
don't get paid enough to care.  Check the shelves yourself.  You never
know what you'll find.

Also watch for computer and electronics blowout clearance shows at
convention centers in larger cities. 

You can even try online and phone order vendors, but even if they swear
they have version 4.000, I doubt that's what you'll get.
