Even though I don't use them much anymore...
I'm still getting geek-envy over this new HP calculator:
I had an HP41C back in the day. I tell ya, there is no RPN replacement for this on the desktop anywhere. Being able to press ENG-3, and get all the numbers in a format that is intuitive. A scrolling stack, I might just buy the new one. I went through 2 HP41's, and couldn't buy a replacement. I didn't like the 48.
The 41 was before my time or something. I got very used to the 48 and yeah, I haven't found anything nearly as good for doing figuring as my old HP RPN calculator available for Windows, Windows CE, Linux, or PalmOS.
Ummm, how'd you get the "Senior" tacked onto your name?
Offtopic, but I started posting as "Flamebait". Then somebody decided to post a response as "Flamebait Jr." So I decided that, since I was first, I should be "Flamebait Sr."
HP keyboards have been going downhill for the past 15 years or so, and the 49G was unusually bad. I fully expect this latest crop to be absolutely unusable.
Oh, if you are an RPN fanatic, the most usable software calculator I've ever found is emacs' calc-mode. It's included in Xemacs and easy to install in "true-GNU" Emacs.
I grew up on the 41 as well. Really excellent machine.
Just me (Sir to you)
