Re: Warning to HP Calculator Users

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next] I have been using an HP-41CV for 17-18 years. I last changed the battery 6 years ago. The damn thing keeps on going. Does anyone else use this model? Does HP still make this model?

If many of you are like me, you've been using an HP RPN calculator since your freshmen-level statics class or even before that.  Over the weekend, I discovered that those of us who depend on our HP calculators may have a potential crisis on our hands -- HP may be ending its calculator development division.  You can read about it here:

HP is the only producer of RPN calculators.  I don't know about you, but my brain only works in RPN!  The switch from RPN to a regular algebraic calculator would probably be more painful to me than the switch from ASD to LRFD (a change that I'm currently undertaking).
