I'm glad you opened the pack. And be sure I'd feel the same if you had decided to keep it closed. Your decision, our suggestions, right?
Anyway, you can count on us (do you allow me, folks?) to support you on using this nice calculator (I'd write magnificent, but this is something the user must feel, not read about). I believe it was designed to those who wanted the most of the HP28 with the classic RPN interface. Symbolic algebraic and object types are not supported, but almost all numeric resources (if not all) available in the HP28C/S are also available in the HP42S. And classic RPN prevails
You bet I'm saving mine to my grand-grandson, too. I'd like very much having some old, usable, collectible stuff like this from my grand-grandfather (books, 78 RPM vynil, slide rules, whatever).
Enjoy your new tool (not a toy).
