RE: Most common calculators in the forum?
Some recent additions to my collection for the statistics (and of course to make everybody envious!):

1. A novelty calculator. A desktop ruler with a vey basic solar calculator that is actually the lid of a box for a selection of Post-its. (eBay, 1€) - everybody has seen it on eBay dozens of times I guess:

[Image: Post_it_Taschenrechner_800px.jpg]

2. Another novelty calculator. Reflects one of my true passions (calculators are only a secondary passion I'm afraid). The calculator itself is so boring that I didn't bother to replace the empty coin battery. The little label with the horse's stable unfortunately has become unglued. Need to keep looking for a perfect one :-)

[Image: IMG13332_800px.jpg]

3. This curious 2/3 scientific calculator which has square root, Pi and logarithm but no triginometric functions. Labelled as "MBO", a German company, but certainly made by someone else:

[Image: IMG13334_800px.jpg]

4. The already mentioned in several posts HP-49g+ into which I didn't even bother to put batteries for the photograph because I don't like it in the least:

[Image: IMG13335_800px.jpg]

5. An older variant of a Ti-83 (again, too lazy to put batteries inside):

[Image: IMG13340_800px.jpg]

6. A newer variant of a Ti-83:

[Image: IMG13339_800px.jpg]

7. Triggered by this thread here http://www.hpmuseum.org/forum/thread-9787.html I got myself a Commodore PR50 to fill a gap (PR100 I have several already):

[Image: IMG13336_800px.jpg]

8. And this one is the crown jewel in this list. Arrived in the mail today from the UK. If you thought red LEDs are a wonderful thing - as I do - then you have not seen a Panaplex display yet. As I have not been able to see the electroluminescent display of the Apollo Guidance Computer's (AGC) Display and Keyboard Assembly (DSKY) in real life, which is probably even more incredibly beautiful, for me that orange gas-discharge display is the top of the world. The calculator itself, a Berkey/Omega 100 is a mere four-banger with the only addition of a fixed-decimal-places switch. But turning on the power will instantly throw you back into the Apollo era! It takes 2-3 seconds until the inverter inside that unusually heavy little calculator (about the size of an HP Woodstock but twice as massive) has generated enough high voltage to "ignite" the Neon gas inside the rightmost "0". So wonderful. How ultra incredibly wonderful would a "Woodstock low power" with a Panaplex display be - I hope the right person is reading this :-)

RE: Most common calculators in the forum?
Main used: HP 12c 50g 32SII 71b - WP34s - Sharp PCG850V

Still in my drawers: various HP (34C 41CV...), few TI Sharp Casio and Elektronika.

I like the (rich) in-the-pocket sizes of the 12C and 32SII; I like the fabulous power of the three big ones; I am a fan of the WP34S’ complexity...

Thanks for sharing. Nice set of pictures.
Panaplex displays will always be my preferred display technology for the quality classic looks.

RE: Most common calculators in the forum?
More items for the statistics have arrived in the mail in the last two weeks:

An HP-37E, advertised as defective, in excellent condition but with some internal connector problems which only show once it has been running for a few minutes:
[Image: IMG13349_1024px.jpg]

A Ti-31 solar, a variant of the trusted Ti-30. Indestructible, no battery - just a solar cell and a capacitor, these things will definitely survive mankind. Does everything one needs to do with a calculator apart from programming:
[Image: IMG13351_1024px.jpg]

A Ti-83plus. I lost count on which ones and how many of each of those I already have. If they sell for less than 3 Euros I buy them. Somebody hand-painted the worn parentheses keys. Whoever used this calculator before me should have bought an RPN model if he needs so many parentheses!
[Image: IMG13352_1024px.jpg]

And now some bells and whistles, or rather colour and sound:
A blue Ti-82 stats. 1 (one!) Euro. Perfectly working and much nicer blue than that Hp49:
[Image: IMG13344_1024px.jpg]

Another Smarties calculator. They come in two sizes and many different colors. This is a large blue one:
[Image: IMG13348_1024px.jpg]

A musical calculator from Casio, the ML-81. Including clock, alarm and stopwatch, unfortunately it can not work with time values like other Casios. The display has a little stain from some liquid but the calculator works (and plays music, albeit only one octave):
[Image: IMG13346_1024px.jpg]

And this one here belongs in every collection: the Disco Calculator! Colored light and disco music from every key pressed. I got it from France, but of course it was made in China. Recently I drove my wife mad by doing some actual calculations with it. The little video below is unedited and not very good but I hope that watching it will boost the sales of the woderful Disco Calculator!
