I know ome people in here will not like it, but others will agree with me, so... Why not?
I have these itens with me (no particular aniversary model):
1 HP25 with everything but the carton case;
1 HP31 with manual, soft case and charger (batteries are not the original pack)
1 (recently given to me by a friend) HP55 with soft case, manual, charger and dead batt pack
I thought about trading them for other itens, newer, that would be somewhat more usefull. After deliberating with myself for a while, I decided I should keep them and, if I get rid of them, that should be for a very, very good reason. I do not consider money will pay for their services, just a good reason (say, one of our dear contributors in here need one of this pieces for some particular reason; I implicitly trust in all of them).
PLease, guys, we are a community. We should help each other in any situation. If a newcomer asks for some itnes value, we should consider that any of us was, at one point, a newcomer. Lets face it: whom of us would get rid of a celebrating model? I wouldn't. I always say I cannot think of a calculator inside a glass box to be seen. If so, only its external case is enough; it can be surely not working. If they are working, let's use them. Even if it is to confirm they are working, and programming. I am studying the HP55, how to build a program on it. I am almost sure I'll never develop a program to run on it, but I would like doing this.
So, I'd say: KEEP THEM! I would.
Just my quarter.
