April fool's!

That is NOT funny!

Why should accountants be the only group to get the benefits of a full-sized Enter key?

Because we accountants are special, that's why! LOL :)

I'm an accountant taking mathematics, so I use the 49g+ more than the 12CP.

A better prank would have been "Just Announced: HP to Release HP-15C Platinum!". Maybe next year... Nice joke anyway :-)

I was thinking about that one too, but then again I thought it would really be cruel since so many folks here actually want to see the HP15C re-released. Why not the HP-41CX or HP-42S????????

I'd vote for the HP-42SX (32K and a serial interface), even in the 33S body :-)

Body?

Isn't this something seriously lifeless?

Hi Marcus,

You had me look up in the dictionary. I've found 22 definitions for body, among them:



10. main part of vehicle: the main part of a vehicle, for example the fuselage of an aircraft or the outer shell of a motor car

The calculator is not exactly a vehicle, but I think the definition above is close to what I meant.

And in the thesaurus:


form, figure, frame, physique, build, bulk

Perhaps I should have said 'shape'. Since it's very unlikely the HP-42S is ever released again, I'd be happy with a newer version, even in the shape of the HP-33S (really not bad).

Best regards,

Gerson
