Of course, if you come upon a bargain like that (3$ for a Portfolio is just plain burglary! ;)), you should get it or else you will regret for decades (and every finely crafted tool deserves a loving home, you know). I understand too the pleasure to fulfil some cravings. But lately, before I wonder if I can afford some new old gadget, I find myself trying to decide whether I just have enough time/room for it, or whether there is another tool that can do the job better (and be easily replaced, I turned down recently a very nice hp 200lx because of that... sometimes it's hard).
I have a NIB casio fx-78 (almost as small as this one, not solar, but ten digits). Build quality is the best I've ever seen, but it is not as useful as my other calcs, so the poor thing sleeps in its box, that's a bit sad too.
