Hi all,

This is my first post here. I'm an electronics engineering student, and I think it is time to give HP another chance. My first one was a 48GX, but it was so damn hard to get anything done, I finally gave up. I spent too many valuable test minutes fussing. I DID like the RPN notation for arithmetic though, and I kind of miss it. So no I'm back to using my TI 85. At this level in my career, I'm not really doing graphing any more. That was much more helpful in High School Algebra than it is now. So I'm looking for a model with all the basic scientific features, the durable construction with hinged keys, (not the new crap they're putting out now...) and hopefully RPN. I was just over at Amazon and saw what seemed to be the perfect calc, the 32SII, but the damn thing is $240! Way too rich for my blood. I also took a look at the 20s and it seems that it may have been discontinued... Also, it is algebraic notation, and I already have enough calcs w/ Algebraic notation. Am I out of luck? eBay seems like it's mostly for collectors, as anything I'm interested in is selling for too much.

Any comments/suggestions/links are appreciated.
