They have inserted the wrong picture. The case says 12CP.

Here is a picture of the 17BII+

WOW look what they charge for a 33S! http://tinyurl.com/6bxjw (with model number "HP17Bii+" further down the page!)

The 33s is definitely NOT worth 110 sterling! At that price, one would be better off buying two used 32sii's.

The 33s is becoming more and more disappointing to me. The keyboard layout feels worse, not better, every day that I use it.

And the H.ms and Polar bugs are totally unacceptable.

It is all garbled up, the stack commands are scattered all over the place----

Just an utter nightmare compared to the voyagers, or even the original 32s (which is not as logical and natural as the voyagers).

I suspect that listing is a mistake, look at the details where they refer to the HP17BII+.

Still, the prices on other calculators are outrageous. 125.99 for an HP-49G+? 139.99 for a (obsolete) TI-89?
