If you turn to page 7 of this week's Circuit City Sunday flyer, you will see a great deal on a nice HP notebook. I'm in the market for a notebook and this is just what I'm looking for. But when I called three different Circuit Cities, I got three different excuses as to why it's not in stock. The most credible was that it's a special "build it your way" model that you have to order in the store and then wait 30 days and then it's availability was subject to stock.

It sounds like this notebook is such a great deal because it doesn't actually exist. If that's the case, that's sleazy, if not criminal.
