The simplicity of no menus offered by the C-series compels me to use them most.
I must admit, I've fallen for the Voyagers myself - although the complexity of the 15C makes it daunting for occasional use. I've had a 16C since it was first introduced, but didn't have a 15C, so grabbed a 15CLE last year. While I love the form factor, there's a lot of complexity hidden under that keyboard, so I padded the "collection" out further with an 11C, which seems to me to represent the sweet spot for a shirt-pocket scientific.
(I also grabbed a 12C, just to keep my accountant on the straight and narrow - pop it on the table during meetings and they realize you might have a clue, after all. ;) And while I was at it, my wife - who does some basic stats and had previously owned a 32E and 18C - needed a decent calculator, so now she has a 12C, too).
But the top of my MRU stack would have to be the 41CV/CX. Loaded up with the Advantage module and two X-Mem modules, there's not much it can't do - but I still have the card reader, 82143A printer and lots of other modules up my sleeve if required, not to mention go-41cx on my phone.
Like you, my 34S languishes in the drawer. When I get some time, I'll upgrade it to 3.x. Sigh - so many toys, so little time. . .
