I have always considered the HP42S as a graphic calculator because it allows individual pixel activation, although it does not have native plotting/graphing functions (must be programmed). Would it be a semi-graphic, perhaps? Anyway, it is the only Pioneer with graphic capabilities, am I correct?
About the Casio's: I owe one of each FX-7000G and FX-7000GA - both working units - and the visible differences are:
- [DEL] & [AC] keys are orange in the 7000G and red in the 7000GA;
- basic kbd background color is flat aluminum in the 7000G while having some gray and blue/green/black shading in the 7000GA;
- bottom keypad has keys mostly in black in the 7000G - except for [DEL], [AC] & [EXE], which is colored gray - while the 7000GA has all of them in gray - except for [DEL] & [AC].
- and I guess the most important of all: LCD is black-dot in the 7000G and blue-dot in the 7000GA (yep, the new one is blue-dot).
Apart of that, some few symbols have been rearranged and some others are printed in wilder form in the 7000GA, improving readability.
And yep: both eat battery juice in great quantities even when turned off, i.e., even when just keeping constant memory contents.
