Panic over - our resellers got the story wrong. It turns out that
whereas they
used to sell a couple of preconfigured models DV082EA and DV083EA, they
intend that the resellers should order a machine built to the
customer's exact requirements (great!). Those two models are still shown
on the HP UK website, but if you try to order with those part numbers
find they are not available. Unfortunately the reseller interpreted this
as meaning NO xw9300's were available. I got the true story from HP

I draw a discreet veil over the name of the large UK company which
up and caused us a few moments of panic there.
