If you buy that computer use the savings code CHEAPMACS at checkout, it'll save you $50 instantly. I've bought from them once, they were okay. Ground shipping is reasonable, anything faster is a total rip.

Well you will not get much for $50. Not much at all. Maybe a 500 Mhz CPU, 64 Mb Ram, 2, 8 Mb Video Card... Are you planning to use this as a server?

It should give you a time estimate on the site. Add the item to your cart and select your shipping method/address. I'm actually not sure if they ship outside of the us or not.
