HP USA Web site Announces HP50G



#13

I checked the HP USA calculators web site and the HP50G is posted! The web site says the callculator is in stock and is selling for $149.95.

Sooooooooo what are you waiting for?????

Amazon is also selling it for $140.99 with free shipping.

No more excuses not to show up at the HHC2006 with AT LEAST one unit!!!!!!

PS: Looks like SAMS Club is offering the lowest price.

But it still doesn't rate a press release?

Regarding the price, be sure to look at the total price, including shipping.

I'd prefer to purchase from http://commerce.hpcalc.org/.

James

James,

I sahre you puzzlement that there is no press release yet. I am sure it's coming soon. From other's feedback it lookw like HP and Kinpo hasvedone a very good job, so a press release highlighting the advantages of the new 50g is a matter of time.

Since HP/Kinpo have apparently listened to complaints about the HP 49 and have given us the 50g, I really really hope that a revised 33s is in the works with at least the colors of the 50g and a non-chevron keyboard.

HP 33s users, unite!


#17

Things are economically driven. If the HP33s has proven to be worth the income and there is a good forecast for sales for an updated model, then HP/Kinpo will put the effort to improve the HP33s.

Otherwise ...........

HP/Kimpo will just role out the HP-15C again .........


N O T !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

:D)

my guess is that the HP33s sells more than the 49 did, because it is cheaper, is allowed for the PE test, and is based on the 32sii which may have been second only to the 12c in terms of sales. I have no idea what how much profit HP makes off the sale of 1 33s vs the sale of 1 49g+ or 50g. At my current company, of all those who are HP users only 1 has a high-end machine (48sx), and the rest of us use the lowly 33s, 32sii, and 11c.

Unless the 15c was updated so you could have more programs and an equation library I would rather have my 33s and 32sii. Is this blasphemy?

Yes. You must make amends. Eighteen months with a TI-30 as your only calculator ought to do the trick.

This crosses the line between penance and torture :-)

Hehehe, you may use the TI in a cute little bay on Cuba (US property). You'll have plenty of time to think about why you may deserve this penance, and torture was never observed there ... ;)

(Sorry folks, it just came over me)

Mercy! I would rather use an abacus or count on my fingers.

I can see how my comment on the 33s is an outrage, but even the older 32sii with double shot keys and the orthodox colors?

We might be able to arrange that. Keep talking.

You should have thought of that before you blasphemed! Anyway, your pathetic appeal to orthodoxy is clearly just a ploy. No True Believer would have even mentioned the name of the chevron'd abomination, and here you go compounding your sin!

No, on second thought, no mercy will be shown in your case. And you only get a single 9-volt battery too. (As if a TI-30 ever lasted long enough to need a replacement. Still.)
