Hello, my friends.
Yesterday, I read some pages in the HP 12 C Platinum owner's hanbook, i found a mystery:
- in page 61, HP wrote : "Calculating NPV for Grouped Cash Flows. A maximum of 30 cash flow amounts (in addition to the initial investment CF0) can be stored in the HP 12C
- and also in page 61, at footnote paragraph for note 15, HP wrote:"15.If you have stored a program in the calculator, the number of registers available for storing
cash flow amounts may be less than 31"
So, HP said that HP 12 C Platinum has "Capability to handle up to 30 cash flows" (20 cashflows in HP 12C), in fact HP 12 C Plat has to share memories (when store 30 cashflow) with memories of programming (if they are idle).
Besides, HP said that 12C Platinum has more than 130 built-in functions (120+ in classical 12C, I think that 10 new build in functions reserved for algebraic entry keystrote.
In short, what's news in HP 12C Platinum:
- algebraic entry;
- Keystroke programming performs up to 400 steps (you need ?);
- Sofware source was be rewritten (more reliable than classical 12 C ?).
Any comment else.
