Agreed that the manual is important to fully utilize a programmable like the 48G, but for a simple scientific, I tend to wing it.
However, a first rate case is a must over here, since I carry the calculator at work and need to be able to hold/use it with one hand while writing on the board with the other. The zip case is perfect, since it offers good protection in the event of a drop, yet allows me to use the thing one-handed.
Everyday carry of the calculator pretty much sours the larger models for me, since they tend to damage my suit's pockets (too heavy). And I can't stand the odd placement of the tiny enter key on the 50G; what were they thinking?!
Argh! I just wish HP would get its act together and repurpose the 12C for scientific use. If they came out with a limited edition of 15C's I would stock up on the things, even if the keyboards aren't quite up to their old standard.
Vent over. All the best,
