RE: Hand-held Calculator Recommended

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I got hit by a car last year and landed on my 48G, breaking the screen.
Really struggled with my new HP 50g until I found a soft switch that allows
it to behave like my old 48.  Now the only difference I notice is sometimes
I'll tap the wrong key for "enter" since they moved it, but if you are
forced to move from an older style HP to the new ones, this may be a
possibility. They have also improved the tactile feel of the keys from the
49 in the 50 (more like the old style HP keys). I tried both and the 50,
while not perfect, was the best RPN fit I could find.

The "deal breaker" for me is not being able to print calculations. What good
are calculations if you can't publish them?
