HP-15C Original UK Purchase Price



#7

I'm just wondering what the original price of an HP-15C purchased in the UK in 1983 might have been.

I suspect it was a major investment (my father made in me) at the time and curious how it translates to 2011 prices.

here are the 1 February 1983 UK recommended retail prices (including 15% VAT):

IMHO, the investment was rather formativ than material.
The early exposition to RPN shaped my expectation of how well designed engineering work should feel like in the hands of the user/consumer.

That's the "real value" of this investment.
