OT: any opinions on Casio FC-100V ? - Iuri Wickert - 02-22-2005

Hello

I'm searching for a financial calculator for Financial Math and Actuarial (sp?) Math undergrad classes.

Is this new Casio financial calculator worthwhile? Anyone's been using it? It compares favourably with HP12C/P and TI BAII? I haven't found a link to download its manual...


Best regards

Iuri Wickert


Where have you seen one for sale? - Gene - 02-22-2005

I'd like to get the 100V and 200V.

If anyone knows where they are available, please let me know.

Hi Gene

It's available in Brazil:

Compare the prices... The Aurora can be found at R$190,00. On the "street market" the HP12CP costs about R$300,00; I'll check the Casio price on the street... The TI BAII shown is the old one (the pictures is correct, that's why I'm afraid to buy it). US$1,00 = R$2,60


Anywhere in the US? I'd really like to get a 100V - Gene - 02-23-2005

Perhaps I'll check the australia location that seems to have them. Wonder what shipping would be? :-)

You can get the FC100v in the UK at Classic Calculators

They also sell the Aurora FN1000

The 100V is available in France. If you want a new, unopened one, I can purchase it andsend it your way, at cost (with receipt and including shipping). No idea about the dealer's price.

CASIO & TI PEOPLE GO HOME!!!!

Just a joke. = )

Actually, I started as a TI user (I still have my TI55II from 1982), but then I saw the light and got me a HP11C, the most practical calculator ever made.

But I DO really hate Casios!!!!!

@Iuri: the HP12C is a very nice machine; get yourself one. I used mine very successfully to solve some linear programming and decision theory problems.

I bought a Casio FC-100V at my local Uni in Queensland Australia for AUD$80. Pity the instructions seem to be lacking.
