Dell doesn't seem to have them on their web site anymore.  

I need to replace one of the ones I currently have, and then add a new one.

I use TrueImage to image the windows XP config, so it will only image
back to the same hardware. This is like Ghost.

I don't want to have to redo my image by starting installing apps and
configuring settings from scratch.

thanx in advnce,

However, it is still possible to purchase an almost-as-good-as-new
refurbished Dimension 4550 from Dell Outlet.  According to this search

If Dell doesn't have this model on their website any more, then it
will be almost impossible to buy two new units as these were made to

You can, however, buy off-lease units from Dell Financial Services'
online store. Currently, they only have one Dimension 4550 available:
