Yes, if you go to www.Circuitcity.com (US site) and put in the Pentium M Cpu (Centrino) as a filter you will see they sell the HPZT3380 you specified and they sell the Compaq X1480US which is identical except for the case design and a few minor features (HP uses Harmon kardon speakers, Compaq uses JBL -- Compaq has a ridge between the scroll and mouse functions on the touchpad, HP does not).
Note also the Toshiba M35S456 with Trubrite which is very similar to the HP/Compaq as well.
See X1000forums.com for some Canadian posters as well as the best custom order specifications and pricing if you can get it shipped from the US somehow ( to a US address for HP/compaq custom ordering.
Also, note that there is a $100 custom order rebate through 9/1/04 (US dollars) but again that is only for shipments to US addresses (Canadian HP/Compaq does not even let you order custom at all).
I really like the HP ZT3380US model laptop. It has everything that I decided is important to me in a notebook computer. However, I'm from Canada, and as you all know, finding notebooks here is pretty ridiculous compared to south of the border. In fact, the only place that sells the HP model is Future Shop's website (of course, its currently on sale and they're sold out). Since the HP ZT3000 and Compaq X1000 systems are the same, I thought I might try to find the Compaq equivalent of that model. Anyone know what it is??
Thanks for your input,
