The only feature missing is a reasonable display - reflecting the progress in 30 years since the launch of the original. Come on, HP :-) you don't want to bring a new calculator with key code programs in 2011, do you?

right, but it's even unaltered way better than the last scientific 35s with it's limited program labels!
My personal killing feature!
(But that is personal preference of mine and that might not always be convincing to others.)

Are you saying that the 15C has MORE program labels than the 35S? Or are you complaining about single character labels (I agree with you there).
