Given what you already have, it' just a matter to choose the disappointment flavor you prefer. 33S, 35S, 15L... each has its own way to disappoint.
I think that the 33S is the less-buggy from this trio, but the display just evolved from "absolutely unreadable" to "barely readable", and the colors of the keyboard legends will heavily stress your eyes (leaving the angled legends alone).
The 35S has a lot of bugs, its display is also very uncomfortable to use. The keyboard legends are better than in the previous case.
The 15L comes from the internal HP development team, which makes a very positive difference from the other two; and recreates the classic vintage model. Ergonomics are good (not as good as the original, but close), and if eventually HP releases new firmware, the bugs may go away (the 15L may be updated, while the other two models cannot). Apart from the bugs, the numeric-only display may look as a limitation nowadays.
A 30B, converted to a WP-34S will be the best suggestion, IMHO.
