What a bargain!


At the Azusa (CA) Swap Meet, I bought a HP 28C for$3. The batteries is going tocost me more. The vendor had a HP 48GX for sale too.

Update: Could not resist, it was only $5 and the one ai have at home has dog chewing on it.

About a month or so ago I picked up an HP-48GX at a local flea market for 25 dollars....box, books, warranty cart, pc cord...whole thing looked mint except for the box, and someone printed a name o the cloth case. Good things happen to good people, no?

Congrats on the finds.


On Ebay a few months ago, I bought 8 HP48G's in mint ondition. The only flaw was the back case was etched a name. The buttons were crisp and the rubber feet look like they never touched a surface. The calcs even had that distinctive "HP" smell. The owner said they were being sold for parts for $50. He said they weren't working. Apparently he didnt know how to operate the calculators. Anyway, his loss was my gain.

Congrats on your eBay find, that's rather unusual that others didn;t know.

Hi Les it means that I'm a bad one: never to me such a bargain!...:=)

But there's time enough..........

Thanks guys! Now does anyone know how to open the battery door on this thing?

Edit: Got it. Have the calculator closed and push the door out with a penny.

No wonder these did not sell well - the battery door was a struggle. LOL

Update: Turns out purchasing the 48GX was a great buy too - mine was only a 48G.
