Depends on the calculator. The 71B would suck in portrait.

Any of the two above? I count three above.

Likewise, my laptop would suck in portrait mode.

You are right Dave, I'm laughing from myself, my apologies.

Way to alienate the 71B enthusiasts! BTW, I like my Voyagers landscape and everything else portrait, except for the 71 which would still suck in portrait.

So, HP41 is not a pure calculator, is it?

So, HP41 is not a pure calculator, is it?

From The Introduction:

The HP-41C represents a totally new concept in the design of Hewlett-Packard calculators. In fact, because of the advanced capabilities of the HP-41C, it can even be called a personal computing system. The HP-41C is the first Hewlett-Packard handheld calculator offering an exciting array of alphanumeric capabilities.


Still an handheld calculator though. The core of a system.

It sounded like you thought the poll should be restricted to pure calculators.

No, sorry if it sounded like that.
Just referring to definitions, and I also appended a smiley! ;)

So, are we including the HP-75 and the HP-110 here? Yeah, those would really suck as portraits. Same with the HP-01, the HP-9815, HP-9830... etc.

Or are we talking calculators (or calculators/computers but not computers/calculators)?

"...even being called a personal computer..."

I'm only a curious here, but the 41 has Alfa and programmable, highly customizable, lots of peripherals....there's another big differences from the 71 beyond language and format?

I really want to know and understand, I'm not being ironic, please.

Thanks

The 41 is a calculator/computer, the 71 is a computer/calculator.

For the record, the 1984 HP Catalog, p.585, refers to "Series 40 Handheld Computers". In the '85 catalog, p.63, the 71B is introduced as a Handheld Computer and the 41's were demoted to Advanced Calculators. Smile

I don't think the 75 and the Portables count 'cause they don't have a dedicated numeric keypad.

Agreed. But the 9810, 9815...?

Good point. Perhaps this poll should be limited to handheld calculators, but then someone will try to hold a 9810/15 in their hand and hurt themselves.
