HP71B Demo Program



#9

When I first got into all of this I worked at an HP dealer. I found on a tape a demo program that HP made that runs on the 71. It starts with the HP logo and a little man running across the screen. then goes on to describe the features of the "new" HP71. It's pretty cool to watch it. There was also a little memory game that you can run too.

I miss the old HP

I wonder if I have a copy of the program. It's probably in the LIF archive somewhere.

I have owned over 200 of these devices over the years. I'm down to 3 right now, I think. Well, 3 that work. I probably have a dozen or so in various states of decomposition. The most I ever bought at one time was 24. .

I love the HP-71B. In my opinion, it is the best handheld that HP ever made. I still use one at work. I have owned almost every handheld that HP ever produced. The HP 71B and the HP 41 were two calculators that I drove from Seattle to Corvallis, on the day of release, to get one. I still remember having to beg one of the sales staff to take one home and I'd pick it up at his home, since I couldn't get there before they closed. He obliged. :-) Direct from HP. That was service. Those days are gone. .

Hi,

I have an EPROM copy of this DEMO... ;-) running on a "card reader" HHP EPROM box.

Mail me if you're interested in the file (EPROM binary image), I'll be happy to share.

Best from the Canary Islands.

If anyone wants to send me a tape I can do likewise. I wish I still had the 9114 floppy drive.
