HP33 - Shaun - 04-29-2005

Hi,

Does anyone know if there is a fix for the minute decimal point marker on this calculator. It virtually disappears when sat between two number 2 digits?

Regards Shaun

Yes ... buy and HP32II!

Use a coma instead of the point; it is slightly better. Otherwise, wait, maybe one day hp will do a new model with bigger point.

I just leave it in scientific mode all the time. That way, I always know where the decimal is *supposed* to be! (-:

It works for me, but I can understand if it isn't a universally popular solution. (I'm usually more concerned with having results to a particular number of significant digits than to a particular number of decimal places....)
