I bought mine from Page Computers.  It is a webstore.

You can also do a search on http://www.shopping.ayahoo.com or 
http://www.buy.com for the specific model you want.  Mine was an Averatec 
3250HX and they have a $100 rebate through January 31.  The price I got mine 
for was $1035 before the rebate.

Hi Steve,
Could you tell me where you found your laptop?

Mine is going to need to be replaced, and I would prefer to find one that is
smaller, and lighter, if possible.

Thanks.
Crystal
