It's a second-from-top financial calculator (right below the HP19BII) and has the following characteristics beyond HP12C's related TVM most common resources (Bonds, Depreciation, IRR, NPV, Cash flow, etc):
real-time clock and calendar
Scheduler with up to ten custom-defined appointments
ALPHA messages (same HP42S ALPHA entry style)
Statistics based on lists instead of summations (good to edit)
user-selectable Algebraic / RPN mode
6.5K RAM for the user
and a few more "stuff".
I have the three of them: HP17BII, HP19BII and the HP12C. I like the HP17BII very much, but I preffer the HP19BII because of it's extended math resources (TRIGS, Hyperbolics), currency convertions and graphics.
Hope this clarifies a bit.
