if I am not wrong, this is enough to add the Equation Library and additional resources to access its data. I read that Equation Library is sharing space with CAS in the HP49G+. If so, welcome!
Forgive me folks if I repeat the fact I'm a teacher all the time. So, let me add that I tell my students that information already existing somewhere must only be found. There was a time that knowing some sort of information by heart was a privilege; I thing that knowing how to find some sort of information is the key for today's professionals. We have virtual libraries in CD's or DVD's, no paper, no forest destruction. For itself, this achievement is a good justification. Based on this, I think that having basic equations already stored in a pocket calculator the way they are, together with CAS in one single unit, is something I cannot disregard. Although many contributors in here express their "worries" for the HP49G, I look at it and see the first HP pocket calculator with "upgradable" O.S., something that neither the HP48G has. And this is something that counts a lot for me. If the HP49G+ is actually an enhancement, I'll find a way to have one.
I'll wait to see.
