I don't have a 49g+, but I'll think that it will be like the 49G in many
ways. The 49G might be better for mathematics students, and is fun to
play with, but for "real work", that is, where I want to get a numeric
result quickly with a minimum of fussing around, I prefer the 48SX or
Yes, the expansion cards are expensive, but keep in mind that the 48GX
comes with 128KBytes built-in, so maybe you don't really need an
expansion card. If you do feel a need for an expansion card, see
http://uuhome.de/oklotz/index_e.html for what's probably the best
prices. The Klotz cards look primitive, but many have reported that they
work just fine.
I don't know that the price on that 48GX is especially good, you might
want to search online or check eBay and compare prices.
As the 48s and 49s may well be banned on the tests, hang on to your
32SII and don't forget how to use it. Or consider the 33S.
