|HP 49g+ just purchased|

I just picked up the most current version of the 49g+, figuring I could just return it if it wasn't worth it. It took a LONG time to decide to buy another one after trying the introductory models in 2003.
Overall, I must say that I am very impressed. Sure, it isn't a 48gx, but WOW, everything is so much better on it.
1. No creaking with quite a bit of torque applied to the case.
2. No (with ROM update) missed keys.
3. The keys are SO MUCH quieter than the initial issue.
After some thought, I have decided to "get over" my vintage HP hangup and start using this and the 33s on a daily basis. The 33s was returned earlier due to my dislike of the cluttered keyboard, but after playing with the 49g+, it wasn't that hard to get used to it.
Hey Les, I finally got the Subject marker straightened out. Very odd indeed.
Now if only HP would drop the 48gII and expand the line-up to include the oh-so-needed HP 43s...sigh.
