HP45
HP70
HP55
HP65 (currently 2 with repaired card readers)

HP25
HP25C (needs ACT chip)
HP19C

HP33S
HP35S
HP50g

Not a pocket machine, but the HP-97 is a beautiful example of engineering. I think you'd enjoy it.


Re: I think my collection is complete... - Donald Williams - 11-09-2010

Congratulations on your quest. You certainly have collected the main ingredients of a quality collection. If your intention was to collect "all" the LED models, my list (if I have everything correct) has a total of 28.

HP 97
HP 92
HP 91
HP 81
HP 80
HP 70
HP 67
HP 65
HP 55
HP 46
HP 45
HP 38 E
HP 38 C
HP 37 E
HP 35
HP 34 C
HP 33 C
HP 33 E
HP 32 E
HP 31 E
HP 29 C
HP 27
HP 25
HP 25 C
HP 22
HP 21
HP 19 C
HP 10

Since you plainly exhibit the irrational behavior of the ordinary HP collector, I am sure you will not stop now.

I still need the HP 70 and HP 81.

Mark --

Although you stated that your 'passion' was for LED models, you have one LCD model (HP-41C) from the LED era, as well as a few modern examples.

Your LED collection is missing the rare and pricey HP-27.

The HP-41CX, HP-15C, HP-16C, HP-42S, HP-27S, and HP-17BII are among the most desirable LCD models from the 1980's. The HP-41CX is the epitome of the HP-41 series, and has some functionality that cannot be added to an HP-41C/CV. The HP-16C is unique among HP models.

For LED models, I have only an HP-35 (no bug) and an HP-34C.

I think you miss the HP-91, HP-92, HP-97, HP-97S..... and certainly the HP-95C... good luck!


Re: I think my collection is complete... - Walter B - 11-10-2010

If you collect LED pocket models, you miss some Woodstocks (21, 22, 27, 29C) and some Spices (31, 32, 33, 33C, 37) still. At least I don't see a reasonable line excluding these from your collection ;)

Good luck in hunting!


Re: I think my collection is complete... - Eddie W. Shore - 11-10-2010

Impressive collection, Mark.


Re: I think my collection is complete... - Steve Perkins - 11-10-2010

Looks like you can quit.

So stop bidding against me (smiles).

An impressive collection with some hard to find models.


Re: I think my collection is complete... - Mark Henderson - 11-10-2010

Ok so you've convinced me I need to continue!


Re: I think my collection is complete... - Mark Henderson - 11-10-2010

My first calc was a Sinclair Scientific (!), then HP-25 and then HP-41C - so that is why it's in my collection! If I have to do some REAL work the 41C is probably my first choice...! I'm quite interested in the HP27, but honestly I've fallen in love with the C versinos of LED calcs and that is preventing me from falling in love with the 27! Well, that and the massive prices they command!!!


Re: I think my collection is complete... - Mark Henderson - 11-10-2010

I've come very close to getting a 97, but I fear my office mates would tease me too much (you see, I use all of my collection daily at work (on rotation, of course! Today it's the 19C :-) ))


Re: I think my collection is complete... - Mark Henderson - 11-10-2010

You make a good point!!? See my thoughts on 27, above. 21 and 22 just haven't gotten to me yet? I have a good 21 emulator on my iPhone, perhaps that's enough?? A 33C would fill my LED+C desires, but the lower 3x range don't really excite me enough...


Re: I think my collection is complete... - Mark Henderson - 11-10-2010

Thank you, it is a disease, but that's why we're all here, right?!


Re: I think my collection is complete... - Mark Henderson - 11-10-2010

Thank you, maybe I'll stop bidding against you?


Re: I think my collection is complete... - aj04062 - 11-10-2010

We could all collude to keep the prices down. Hmmm.

I've got:
HP97 (I agree very nicely engineering and easier to repair)
HP65 (fully repaired FINALLY)
HP55 3 (two adjacent serial # calcs with all docs), 1 FOR SALE
HP45
HP35 3; last model, 2nd Gen, raised dot with bug
HP10

HP75D
HP95LX
HP200LX

HP41C with reader & modules
HP48S, SX, G, GX
HP50G

HP20S
HP32S
HP32S 50th Aniv
HP11C
HP12C
HP19B
HP33S

Unison 811-C (almost counts, has HP Red LED...)

Crap, I didn't know I had this many till I tallied them...


Re: I think my collection is complete... - Steve S - 11-10-2010

...After a quick scan, I'm surpised that apparently no one has mentioned the HP-1.

LED, no...???


Re: I think my collection is complete... - John B. Smitherman - 11-10-2010

Imagine a modern HP-97. How awesome would that be?


Regards,


John


Re: I think my collection is complete... - Mark Henderson - 11-11-2010

Hmm - the HP-01 - yes, LED, but, no RPN :-( I'd still like one, though. Too bad they command >>$2k these days...


Re: I think my collection is complete... - Ed Sowell - 11-11-2010

If you're afraid of leaving a paper trail that curious eyes might drift across seeing all your coding errors, just don't turn Trace on :-)




Re: I think my collection is complete... - Mark Henderson - 11-12-2010

Just knowing the decimal point on the 19C has that tiny HP logo on it makes it a favorite!


Re: I think my collection is complete... - Eddie W. Shore - 11-12-2010

LOL

Same here, I am going to get the 27S next week - can't wait.


Re: I think my collection is complete... - Walter B - 11-12-2010

Thanks for your kind words?


Re: I think my collection is complete... - Steven Ellis - 11-13-2010

Heh, strange coincidence: the HP81 is one of the only two LED models that I own, and one of the only two that you *don't* own.


Re: I think my collection is complete... - Donald Williams - 11-13-2010

This situation cannot be allowed to continue. We need to trade.
