|For those saying that 35s screen is an improvement over 33s|

I have taken a few good res pictures under two lighting conditions:
These are under outdoor light directly coming from a window:
With good light, both LCD displays look similar. You can see that the 25s display has a bit more glare, and the 33s is easier to see. Also, notice the theta character on the top line of the 35s. Too similar to an 8.
Now, let's go to indoor working with these machines. The following pictures are taken indoors with enough light to work, write, or jot down numbers (like any regular office or lab):
In these pictures, the HP-35s can be seen sucking out loud with its bad LCD.
These photos are just my $0.02 for those considering the 35s.
Judge for yourself.
I work in an environment with constantly changling light conditions, going from bright sunlight to diffuse haze the next minute. I haven't tested it yet (I bought it two days ago), but I have serious doubt that it'll improve "in the field".
Oh, and the decimal point from the 33s that so many people disliked is rendered identically on the 35s.
Improved display? I don't think so.
