34c - 7/1/1979

41c - 7/1/1979

They both were certainly introduced at the same time here in Spain, decades ago.

Though I was primarily interested in the HP-41C at the time, I clearly remember that I also borrowed and HP-34C from local HP, for which I wrote a Solutions Book ("HP-34C Advanced Mathematics") which Hewlett-Packard published locally, and in the process I grew to appreciate the HP-34C a lot, it still is one of my favorite HP calcs.

The book was introduced at a large trade show and sold very well, so HP wanted a couple of similar Solutions Books for the HP-41C, "Advanded Mathematics" and "Advanced Physics". Regrettably, even though both were duly written, some changes at the top of local HP resulted in them not being published. Both original manuscripts are still fondly filed in my cabinet ...
