READ THIS CORVALLIS: if i had my 'druthers, i would like to see another 42S come out, except this one would have 128K (AT LEAST), 2-way communication (like the 48), a clock, and it would have this "unit" that came with it which would would communicate with the calc via IR. This unit would have ROM ports (like the 41), the 82240B printer built in, an IR PC interface, (maybe even a card reader) and, oh, let's say about 8 meg storage capacity. Basically, it would be similar to the 41 IL system in one neat, very little package. The unit would be about the size of the 82240B printer, so it would be very compact, and since it would communicate via IR, you wouldn't lose the most-important thing: shirt pocketability. (Yes, we have the technology for this sort of thing.) Oh, and one more thing. The new 42S would have to be SCREWED together (not heat staked) so that us die hard hp lovers could hot-rod our babies! what's the new 42S going to be called? (drum roll please...) why, the HP 42SII, of course!!!!! (ha ha ha ha ha )
But this is just what i want.....
