>Hi there, Many thanks for your replies so far. I was contemplating the 50g, but ... i dunno.. there's just something about the 48GX - LOVE the keyboard, the whole 'mature' outlook & feel of the machine etc.
Imho i prefer the 50g for the keyboard agencement , and the look and feel of the 50.
>One thing I've read about Meta Kernel is how much 'faster' it apparently is compared to the native 'built in' features, like 'Equation Writer' stating in some cases to be 100 times faster!!
And 200 times faster on the 49G... and perhaps 400 times faster on 50G ;)
>Which begs the question, If optimized code could be written to perform like MK does, the potential was there all along. This being the case, why is HP's OWN software 'Equation Writer' for example, so slow, when a 3rd party has proved it could have been done better in the first place?
Perhaps i'm wrong,but i think that the 49G/49G+ and 50G have all of this integrated. Equation writer, matrix editor (and list editor), CAS, speed, RAM, USB connection, SD card you can use like mass storage, larger screen, better font etc etc.
I think that if you use a 50G few hours, you will never want to downgrade on a 48GX. A point for the 48 could be the small enter key of the 50 (i like this small enter key), and the keyboard feeling wich is good but less than on the 48GX
