You had me look up in the dictionary. I've found 22 definitions for body, among them:
10. main part of vehicle: the main part of a vehicle, for example the fuselage of an aircraft or the outer shell of a motor car

The calculator is not exactly a vehicle, but I think the definition above is close to what I meant.
And in the thesaurus:
form, figure, frame, physique, build, bulk

Perhaps I should have said 'shape'. Since it's very unlikely the HP-42S is ever released again, I'd be happy with a newer version, even in the shape of the HP-33S (really not bad).
