So, it being 8.30pm on the date of dispatch and all I somehow doubt HP have got it right this time. I'm still waiting on a reply about the processor, and I've figured that if the machine isn't dispatched by the time I receive that I'm cancelling my ordering and just getting a Toshiba M700 instead. Interestingly though, both Dabs.com and Play.com now sell the TX2550ea, both listing it with the 2.4GHz ZM-86 processor. Play also give a list of ports and don't mention the FireWire port that HP seem to think it comes with, whilst Dabs doesn't list the ports. You know it's really bad when 3rd party sites are more up-to-date on the machines than the manufacturer. Neither have it in stock: Play don't mention when they're expecting it, Dabs says 5-7 days.
