    Are HP notebooks just re-badged Compaqs?

    I just ordered an HP Pavilion ZT1135 (Celeron 1.2 GHz,256 MB RAM, 20-Gig HD, 14.1 XGA/TFT, CD-RW/DVD, WindowsXP Home). It looks a lot like a Compaq. Does Compaq make the same model, but under a different name (i.e. like Ford Taurus and Mercury Sable)?

    I seem to remember HP and Compaq trying to merge a while back, but it stalled. What's the deal?

    HP and Compaq ARE merged and supposedly maintaining separate lines for the present, but it wouldn't be surprizing if they were putting out the same product under both labels.
