My favorite calculator depends on what I am doing.
No one calculator is right for everything.
Sometimes I am just balancing my checkbook.
In that case, I go f-fIX-2 and I use my HP-34C.
But if I am doing my analog electrical engineering,
well that's more intense so I go f-ENG-4 and use my HP-34C.
Then comes the calculator for my briefcase. I want
something that gives me a warm fuzzy feeling when
I am out and about, so for that I'd use HP-34C.
Then comes a calculator on the desk at work.
There, I like to really make clear to the world what decade my roots are in. So for that I use an HP-34C.
And lastly, comes tutoring work, like teaching a kid a bit of mathematics or trigonometry. There, due to the need
to not have any B.S. or unwanted complications, I
always reach for an HP-34C.
So my 5 votes for a favorite calculator are
also (c) and lastly (c) .
