Re: New and improved 42S? done - paul w - 05-29-2000

this was the message i left hp

"i would like you great folk at hp to reintroduce the hp42s. With any increase from its 7k memory to say 32k and an input/output device (4 pin like the hp48g series) i think hp could recapture and regain a large market that has become increasing jaded by newer products that have left them stranded. the key to the hp42s calculator was its simplicity (programming and functionality). a lot of folk like myself use the products of mr hewlett and mr packard in their careers and many have made a considerable committment of time and energy to learning the products of the number 1 calculator/computer company. however many folk got left behind when the hp42s series stopped production and the hp48g was introduced (im not bagging it i have one and its great) but i put an amazing amount of time learning how to use it and many people dont have that time. in summing up i feel you great people see the benefit in not alienating a market sector that has served you well in the past (many of these people have a dozen or more products) and if word of mouth is the best form of advertising then these are your best sales people.

your greatest supporter

hope it helps get the 42 back (im not holding my breath however)
