71B case question


The 71B that I purchased is on its way but it is minus a case for it. Will 48gx soft case fit it? I am not sure of true size of 71B, so if you are familiar with 71B and 48gx please let me know (or of any other case that may fit it).


No, the 71B had its own case, a large version of the style used in the Woodstock series


Note that http://www.hpmuseum.org/hp71.htm lists the 71B dimensions as 7.8" x 3.9" x 1", and http://www.hpmuseum.org/dim48.htm lists the 48 series dimensions as 7.1" x 3.2" x 1.1", so it seems that a 48 series case would be too narrow for a 71B.

For at least the current models, the dimensions can be found on HP's own site.

If you can find a model with all dimensions the same or slightly larger than the 71B's, then its case ought to work.

I don't think that there is an hp calcualtor that resembles the 71B in size even closely... The unusually sized 19C is still smaller (and harder to find than the 71 anyway), even the 200 LX is smaller!, and the 75 and 91/92/97 are much larger.

The only calculator that I can think about now that is about the size of the 71 is the Psion Series V palmtop. There are quite a few third-party pouches for Psions to chose from, but I would try it first in the shop.

Greetings, Max

BTW: I have the same problem with my 75C - no case and a very, very unusual size!
