I must concur. In my experience of frequenting Office Depot/OfficeMax, Staples among others, I always ask where the HPs are and yes, amongst the selection are only the business models and, of those, the ones that are the top sellers. Even so, I still ask and I get the same sense from their feedback that since the AOS, DFE, and EOS machines are popular with the kids and recommended by teachers, these stores haven't sold an HP scientific or graphing in at least five years.
Sadly, the Staples, Office Depot/Max genre has flushed out the Tam's, Freeway Stores, Computique and Olympic Sales shops. And then, the Targét and Walmart troops have done their share.
And, more students and parents would buy TIs, Casios and Sharps wherever the Targéts and Walmarts are. Which, once again, the populus which buys the other guys would most likely pick there anyways along with ther school clothes. So, once again, HP scientific and graphing calcs get flushed out. Yikes!!
