buying hp48GX vs. 49G


I am looking for some help. I am a first year engineering student with a TI 82 and I am looking to purchase a new calculator. I have narrowed my choices down to the HP 48GX and the new HP49G. I plan on becoming a geomatical engineer and would like the best calculator avalible for this application.


If you're familiar with TI's machine your best choice is a TI 92Plus. But if you want start with a new one you should consider to buy a HP49G because it can be used as a RPN machine or algebraic.
Sorry, I can't help you about existing apps for HP's or TI's on geomatical subjects.
