Re: Hand-held Calculator Recommended

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Texas Instruments TI-30XS. I think I paid 20 bucks at Walgreens. Works just fine. Like others have said, anything needing crunching I use Excel. My HP-48 had a button die on me years back...

Hi guys;
       I have both an HP-41CV and an HP-41CX with various warn out buttons
and would gladly pay $900 for a decent refurbished HP-41.  I will check ebay
– thanks for the tip!
       I currently use an HP-49GX which I hate with a passion.  The buttons
are constantly dropping numbers and hard to press.  Most of our calculations
are on Excel spreadsheets now, though.  When I go looking for a new
calculator, I generally check with the boys at DSA to see what they are
       I can't use any of those TI or Sharp products – if it doesn't have
an ENTER button, I can't use it.  I lose too many numbers!
       Take care,

I've got a 41-CV sitting in my drawer.
It needs a battery, though.
