|Anniversary 12CP - Ugh!|
Message #1 Posted by One of those MBAs you all love! on 10 Aug 2006, 7:13 p.m.
As an MBA and CFA student, I've been using my 12Cs for quite a few years (I have 4 that were manufactured between 1982 and 1995). When the Platinum was launched, I found the colour scheme horrible, so I held off and kept using my reliable 12Cs.
When the 25th anniversary was introduced, I decided to take the plunge. While the increased speed is impressive, I don't really like the new screen or the feel of the keyboard.
There's one thing, though, that drives me completely nuts; I'd exchange the calculator for another if I thought that would help, which is why I'm here.
Unlike my older 12Cs, this calculator does NOT sit flat on the desk when I use it; only 3 of the 4 rubber feet come into contact with the desk. I don't have this problem with any of my 12Cs; I'm not sure if this is because the older units are heavier, or if the rubber feet aren't even.
I'm wondering; are all the new 12C/Platinum/Anniversary units like this, or is mine an exception? If it's the latter, I'll exchange it...if it's the former, then I think I'll stick with my trusted old 12Cs...and buy as many more as I can off of eBay!
