HP stills make scientific calculators. They recently came out with the HP35s which is an updated version of the HP35 that came out in the early 70's. They originally cost $400, I got mine in 1975 for $300 (I thought I got a great deal). I still have the HP35, I had to get a new battery pack after too many recharges. At work I have a HP48G. When there was a yet another rumor a few years ago that HP was getting out of the calculator business, I bought 2 more 48Gs from Ebay. I don't like the button locations for the new HPs. The funny thing is that the HP35 is more than enough of a calculator for me (add, subtract, multiple, cosine, etc.). If the calculations get complicated, I use a spreadsheet instead of programming the calculator.
