However, I think this will be of interest to many. The buyer of this calculator may or may not be aware of what they really purchased, but the seller certainly goofed badly.

New look for HP-11C?

Wow!

Must've been a goof at the factory? Maybe the wrong emblem was affixed later?

I don't feel so bad for the seller--$272 is a pretty good 15C price, just a little less than I paid for my pristine exemplar. Judging from the high closing bid I am pretty sure the buyer new what (s)he was actually getting.

Eheheh,

but, the 15C goes for higher price than the 11C ... and it's more powerful.

So I think the seller doesn't know what he is selling as well.

It's just a matter of exchanging the HP logo on the top corner.

Speaking of this, I've been wanting to ask for some time; Do you know anybody that makes this logos? Or at least a good idea on how to do them? I have an 15C with a weared logo and it would be nice to replace it.

I have the same question--on my well-worn 11C, the silver paint or whatever it is has almost completely worn off the emblem. Being able to convincingly "re-silver" the emblem would really brighten up the look. The calc has been around the block, and I look for any reasonable opportunity to give it a facelift.

Maybe it has the wrong keyboard surround and the 11C badge is correct...

No, the rear label is consistent with a 15C...

Provided you had a master, it should be reasonably easy to make a mould in plasticine and cast it with resin then paint. I've had a brief look at adapting a 12C logo but not taken it any further.

WE DON'T CARE.
TAKE IT SOMEWHERE ELSE.
Jeez.
You know you could have at least put 'ebay post' in your title. That way I wouldn't have wasted *my* time in looking.
Please learn to be more considerate in the future.

C'mon Mr Angry,
this, at least, is about a sort of variant Voyager... not about the auction in itself.

Greetings,
Massimo

Frankly, I find the post interesting. I also find the ebay talk entertaining.

Who are you to tell us what can post so long as it is within forum rules?

That's a good point about the price. Probably most bidders weren't fooled by the logo. My guess is that with the intense resale market for these machines, there's a lot of refurbishment going on, and this one's just a silly mistake.

Oh well, as long as *you* are entertained...

Who am I? Ever heard of free speech? If I'm angry I'm within my rights to express myself.

Who are *you* to criticise me?

Pot, kettle, black, eh?

Mr Incredible!
