Wow tough one.  Short of closeout, B-stock or black Friday you won't find something like that new for that price.  Your best bet is Craigslist, Tigerdirect or maybe newegg.

Go to your local mall and look for a "White Van" in the parking lot.

No kidding. Craig's List is going to be your best bet, with that budget.
