RE: Is 50g good or crap?
I totally agree there is a big market for such an open platform, but I think HP might consider that the profit margins are too thin.

However, note that profit margins are very high for Apple.

Thus, for a PREMIUM market, that demands PREMIUM QUALITY HARDWARE KEYS, SCREEN CLARITY, DURABILITY (for literally decades), then there is a strong case to be made (pun intended).

I am interested in how well the HP-15c LE sold. Maybe not enough for the company's priorities right now, but I actually think the calculator division is where HP should focus to gain BACK its legacy of engineering and quality and intelligence.

Otherwise HP is just riding with the rest of them to the lowest margin pit on commodity stuff. (Of course, I know technical services is a money making area but those technical guys also can use, and sell, tools).

Apple is the best example of differentiation and earning big bucks because of it. HP used to be like that. So, one can't make the excuse that it's too hard to make profits on hardware.

Maybe if more teachers used and promoted RPN, that would help. Apple used to have evangelists market to the education sector to get them to buy Macs (this was way back in the 1980s and 1990s).
