Compared to a 42s, how does a 41CL stand-up? Are the keys on the 41 superior?
As always, it's a matter of personal taste. To me the keys are definitely superior, and no soft-Alpha thank God.
With all the modules included the feature set should be good?
It's as close to perfect as you can imagine.
What about speed?
As fast as I need it to be, a joy. See benchmarking article at:
(BTW it'll be good to have all that data in a chart format, right Gene??? :-)
In my experience the real-life calculations are a better measure, but FWIW here are the results:
