I recently purchased a "new" hp20s off ebay. The manual is still shrink-wrapped and the thing looks new as described. But beside the Hewlett Packard logo, in capital letters is the word CIRCONIX. Looks like it came this way from HP. Anyone know why this is? Is Circonix a large company that would have ordered a large number of hp20s with the company name on them??
Thanks for any insight,

http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&lr=&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&q=circonix&btnG=Google+Search 1 to 10 of about 96 hits suggests they *were* "a premium manufacturer of control and drive systems specialized for coating and laminating machines for the converting industry, and is the exclusive supplier for Polytype", but alas sometime in December A.J. Willner Auctions did "Circonix - Office Furniture" (as it's in the past, A.J. Willner wouldn't properly display for me).
