Richard Nelson recently wrote that the HP-30b will be available at Office Depot stores in August. I checked it out today. The calculators haven't arrived yet, but there is a peg labelled "HP-30bii, HP financial calculator, $49.99". I had to laugh at the "ii" and wonder where that came from. The salesman checked his inventory and saw 0 units, but from the peg it looks like it is on the way.

I saw some today at the Office Depot in Athens, Georgia.

Thanks Joe. I'll check again in a couple of days and see if they make it to Louisville.

I just checked their consumer on-line store and the business OD web page (for corporate clients only; company I work for uses them for office supplies). It doesn't show for on-line purchases; must be an in-store only item for now.

Considering the problem is usually the other way around, I'd say that is an improvement! :-)

and they ship it worldwide.

Unfortunately, the spec sheet at Samson says "programmable with 32K user memory." This has been a problem since day 1. Some nimrod, probably in marketing, put 32k in the spec sheet when, in fact, there are 290 bytes of user memory. That's a huge difference.

Tim, tell somebody in marketing that resellers are still saying 32K and it's WRONG!!

They fixed it! Praise be!

Just yesterday it read up to 32KB RAM. Looks like they read your post (Carl?). I wish they had a couple of 33s left - I've bought twice from them, excellent service!
