A year later, at a little company called Intel, I could afford one—with my own money, that is.

But it was amazing…I used to play with it in the campus bookstore. I can choose from the 10B, the 10C and the 12C. I never had one of these and regret it, because I already had a TI programmable calculator and was too cheap to spring for another.

And let the bidding wars begin! That ticks me off.

And RPN was utterly natural, allowing rapid-fire calculations. I got my first 15C back aj high school, and it was the only calculator I used for the next couple of decades.

Much too non-intuitive for simple little me. I was the only one I knew in middle tue with protramming reverse Polish notation calculator. I have to admit I do not use it too often as I try to do physics order of magnitude estimates in my head as a sport. But it is still working perfectly and I use it every day. Having used my 15c since it has finally died. RPN calculator, binary clock, unix operating system, Lisp programming language, LaTeX document processing — the high road is a lonely road!

Although admittedly binary clocks are just showing off, rather than being superior like the other examples I gave. The lack of alphabetic characters on the HPC also means that it is accepted in exams where newer HP calculators are rejected because they could be used to store notes and formulae.

Which one do you recommend?

Unfortunately, by now it also has a few faulty pixels. The business geeks are just as crazy about the HP 12C. But it broke within a few years. More great sites from Kalmbach Media: To make things even better, my students never try to borrow it.
