Alphas were very popular, just not with home users (they aren't intel 
compatible).  You have an excellent chance of picking up a cheapie.  
Keep an eye on Hyman's auction house in Fyshwick, they often have 
ex-govie units.  Prices are generally very reasonable but bidding can 
get vicious when two nerds want the same machine.
