35S - AU$141 - DaveJ - 07-29-2007

Looks like the 35s will be going for a very pricey AU$141 in Australia (US$120), from this supplier at least:

I am Canadian and between expedited shipping and taxes and fees at the border I ended up paying around $90US ($100CDN) including all costs. I really like the calculator so was quite happy to splurge. I have spent a hundred bucks on stupider things in the past.

It is not a perfect calculator, but considering how outrageously expensive the HP65 was in 1974 (and that is hardly a perfect machine either), it really is a bargain even at the outrageous markups outside the US.

Almost exactly twice what I payed buying in the USA and shipping to Oz.

Who did you buy yours from Pauli?

Samson Cables.

The only problem I encountered was that the plastic blister the calculator came in was cracked by the time it got here. The calculator worked fine of course and nothing inside was damaged.

You should be thankful! That probably made the damn thing easier to open.

I do so miss when calculators came in things called "boxes". Crazy idea, I know.

(And yes, I understand the economics of blister packaging. Doesn't mean I have to like it, though, does it?)

I got mine from Samson Cables ($53+$20 = A$84) paid on 15-7, arrived here in Sydney on 26-7 and strangely enough, the blister pack was broken on top, not opened and no damages.

Cheers,

Reth

That sounds about what it will cost from YorkU bookstore at $84.95 CDN with 6$ shipping, PST and GST = $102.84

Don't know if they actually have them, tho - if you click on the B/W image of the calculator for more info you get a JPG of a B/W scan of the back of the brochure - not even the PDF from HP's web site?

I got mine from York U. Slightly tilted LCD display, so buyer beware. But seriously, a nice calculator (to semi-retire my 32SII, due to more memory for programs). The display is by far the weak link in 35s. Next to my 20-year-old 32SII it is much inferior in contrast, even on highest setting. But I like the keys.
