Yes, I already got a kind reply from one of my new friends, who works for
IBM.   Nice arrangement IBM gives them :)
As it happens, the ANU purchasing office yesterday gave the official IBM
contact for the uni, so I'll wait and see if they can match the employee
discount, since that will be easier (more official) for ANU, who will be
paying for the computer.
