Since wishful thinking won't get us anywhere...
I bought my 15C in 1984. It served me well through college, medical school, residency, etc. The original batteries died in 2001! It still works great.
I love my 15C. The bevel-edged keys with the blue, "g-shifted" labels, the solid feel, the obvious detail in the quality of the construction.
From all the comments I've seen about the new calculators, I think we've witnessed a bygone era...
I wonder why HP did away with the "f" and "g" shifted keys and introduced these "left" and "right" pointing arrows. I think it makes the face look needlessly cluttered.
I have a 48G at work. It's very nice but doesn't have that great "HP look" anymore. These new 33s/49g+, etc. look like TI/Casio/Sharp, etc.
