After much stressing, I finally decided to purchase a 12C platinum. I gotta say that although I didn't initially like the form factor, I have found that I like it, but now have a couple of complaints.
1. The ON-OFF key. To turn the calc. on, press as normal. However to turn it off, although you are supposed to press the yellow function key. However, mine doesn't. All I need to do is to press the ON-OFF button again. Does anyone else's calc. do the same thing?
2. The keys feel solid, but I am wondering if they are getting more and more inconsistent. For example, to turn the the calculator on takes a 2 second press and hold. Once fired up and turned off, if I turn it on again right away, I don't need to press and hold.
So, did I get a special 12, or does every 12CP do this?
One of the things I really like about the 12 is how nicely the RPN and AOS are integrated into the calc. HP really did a good job, and they even kept a double size Enter key!
