HP 12c Prestige
Message #1 Posted by Brandon Poindexter on 4 Sept 2011, 8:14 p.m.

HP must really like dishing variants of their calculators left and right right now. Their calculator page shows something called the HP 12c Prestige. I haven't really followed the HP 12c in the past. But is it a new derivative or an older model?

For me most of these supposed HP web pages linked today appear to be dummies. I mean there is limited information on them. The expandable menus don't work.

Anyone else have the same experience?

Here's a spec sheet that is (c) 2005:

I've never seen this model. It looks the same as a Platinum but with the same case of the 25th anniversary. I do notice this video was recently uploaded to YouTube (Aug 19, 2011).

The 12c Prestige was only sold in Brazil.

I have one. The faceplate and cover around the display are gold color rather than platinum. Otherwise, it is a platinum.
