I liked the new features and comparison pages. Just some suggestions/corrections:
HP25: While it is true that is does storage arithmetic, it does not have "recall arithmetic" ie: it has STO+0, STO*5, but no RCL+1. Other models have RCL arithmetic, if memory helps, even the HP45 did. Opcode space limits may have been a cause for this, since each merged keystroke was to be coded in one single byte, so there were only 255 possible opcodes, and recall arithmetic would have consumed 32 opcodes.
HP25: The link at the bottom of the HP25 page leads to the HP21, not to the HP25C, as supposed.
HP41C: No suggestions.
HP42S: It does NOT has overlays or magcards to define softkeys, only softlabels on the display menu.
HP42S: Sum of lists IS supported. First edit a matrix, and then press the Sigma key with the matrix object in the x register.
HP42S: Subroutine levels are 8, not 6 as stated.
