|Re: 33s, 35s or 15cLE--which to buy?|

If you like messages and prompts: HP 33S or 35S.
35S wins in the ability to program to a label's specific line. However, no built in Polar and Rectangular conversion (though there are plenty of programs to work around this).
33S has a "unique" design, built in Polar and Rectangular conversion, less bugs, cheaper, but you are restricted to 27 program labels - period.
If you like landscape calculators, fast numeric routines, the HP 15C could be a way to go. IHMO it looks the best of the three and if you have a classic 15C, the new edition does not disappoint. (Just don't use PSE) However, they can be super hard to find.
Of the three, the 33S is the cheapest.
Hope this helps.
