|New HP12C that uses 2 batteries, and is blazing fast.|

I was in my local Staples tonight, and ran across an HP12C that had a rather large battery door, so I was curious. I opened it, and found that it took TWO CR2032 batteries, not one, so I then did a standard 30year mortgage TI calculation and to my great surprise, there was no Running, Running, Running... Just an instant answer.
This thing is WAY faster than my 1990 era 12c, and even faster than my Platinum edition from a few years ago.
Staples was out of stock on the calculator or I would have bought one on the spot.
I called HP to see if I buy one from their store will I get this one, and the guy on the support call basically told me I was an idiot, that no such thing existed. BUT I HAVE PICTURES! :)
So here is my question...
Has anyone else seen one of these, and do you know where I can get one?
Other than the batteries and the blazing speed, this thing looks exactly like my 1990's era 12c. It doesn't have the paren keys on the sto/rcl buttons that the Platinum calc does.
