What a joke...


Canned joke...


He recommends the 48gII and not the 35S?


Hello Frank,

it sounds like an automatically produced answer. You never know how many persons have to respond how many questions.

That the system recommends a hp 48 doesn't match to the hp 15c, but from the system point of view a good approximation.



I see a bigger problem with that canned response from HP.

1. The 48GII specs listed in the email reply are wrong. There are two versions of the 48GII. I think it was either 2006 or 2007 HP introduced an updated version that added a USB port and the Equation Library from the 48G. It also now takes 4 AAA batteries. Memory was updated also to 256k vs the old that has 128k. The old one had 80k free. The new one has much more.

2. HP's websites for the 48GII either have broken links or have wrong information on the 48GII as well.

store link with wrong info

broken Data sheet link and broken learning modules link

I know these have been pointed out before.

On a related note, HP still has an incorrect data sheet for the 15C LE floating around. You can find it with google easily:

15C LE with 12 character display
