RE: Most common calculators in the forum?
A recent addition to my collection, received as a seasonal gift: a Sperry Remington 661D - 6 digits displayed, up to 12 calculated, fixed point. From 1972 or so, actually made by Casio, and with a Hitachi chip.

I came across a Sperry-Remingdon 663 at a thrift store just a couple weeks ago. It's virtually identical to the 661-D, but moves the power switch from the front face to the side.

It's a bit hard to find, but if you like weird Casio Mini adaptations, I recommend the Root-8S.

RE: Most common calculators in the forum?
I edited again my first post, as I retrieved in my mother's cellar my old Casio PB-110 (Database Computer and calculator), 1983 (described here).
I must only change the two CR2032, Tuesday...

1 x 11c (dropped in water by colleague, got dead 25 years ago to try to fix, never did)

1 x 15c (died spontaneously last year. Didn't know they could do that.)

Oh, that's a major upgrade - the decimal point actually floats! What you (and I) took to be a front-mounted power switch is actually a selector between 0 and 2 decimal digits displayed after the point. The 661 is fixed point, the 663 is floating point.

Ah okay, I should've noticed that. The 663 is analogous to the CM-603, rather than the CM-602.

I'm updating also my first post, as I got a Casio FC 1000 (financial consultant) and they are coming here (next week) HP 41CX and HP 42s (happy!)...

At the moment, a very last update of my first post, with HP 71B and HP 15C LE.

And me too :-(

Because of the latest additions:

- Woodstock Low Power (Serial Number 0008 with GPS, found in the mailbox today, to be implanted into an HP-21 tomorow, time permitting)

- Commodore P50 (still on it's way from the UK) - inspired by this thread: http://www.hpmuseum.org/forum/thread-9787.html

- MBO Monarch 1 (in transit)

- Ti82 Stats (in transit)

- Ti83 (in transit)

I truly hope that I will be outbid on all other auctions, otherwise there will be nothing to eat for the rest of the month....

RE: Most common calculators in the forum?
I did not forget the thread (aside from the fact that the post themselves are great, a summary like the one in the first post, though, helps).

The problem is that I am having other priorities and I am also thinking to pass convent the first post data in monospaced text, so:
Code:
 code
to improve the readability.

Also I am losing one auction after another one ebay, even if it seems that people throw away for little money a lot of functional wonderful objects (casio, ti, hp, etc..), there is always someone looking like me on the same object and snatching it at the last moment when I don't look.

So far: a fx5800p lost, two 50g lost, 2 voyager ti200 lost, three 9860 are still open. There was a 48gII but I was not convinced I could use it. A 48 G for crumbs too, what a pity. I did not pick it because once again I was not sure I could employ it for real. There are plenty of TI and casio (most common worldwide I think), really it is heartbreaking.

Heartbreaking because I guess for each object sold on ebay there are thousands working objects (calculators or what not) unsold and trashed.

You just need to decide how much you are willing to pay for each item, beforehand, and not deviate from that. For some peculiar items you may set apart a small percentage more than your max amount.
If you win, you are within your budget, if you loose... oh well, who cares: it's not in your league.

RE: Most common calculators in the forum?
Not yet time for a big update, nonetheless since now the data collected is a bit, I am afraid to lose it (as far as I know, MyBB does not offer versioning). Therefore I started to use the community wiki that has versioning included.

I will update first the wiki page, to have versioning, and then mirror here.

http://www.wiki4hp.com/doku.php?id=forum...calculator

(or you may update it yourself, but then I still have to mirror )

RE: Most common calculators in the forum?
First post updated.

A couple of notes. I appreciate the honesty when you write "just bought", "in transit", "will be there". But I don't list it (because the device is assumed working, can be also DOA although I never hope so).

For the long lists, I really appreciate them, but then I report mostly the HP models.
The first post is only a partial overview, the real previous data is in the single lists.

Thanks to the holy wiki, one can check better whether I did the right additions.
