odd 41 sighting
Message #1 Posted by dave on 29 Apr 1999, 9:57 p.m.

just this morning I had a drafting tech ask me about using the surveying module/programs in a 41, handed it to me as I said "let me see that jewel" and after removing a standard overlay and the surveying overlay, there in my hand resided a 41cx-halfnut-blanknut. wow, what a machine! the lower edge has only "hewlett-packard", the back label is white and confirms 41cx. How common??

I don't really know how common it is. However, I once saw many of them for sale at a surplus store in a like new condition. I bought 3 of them, my brother he bought 3 for $5 a piece. I gave away 2 of them and still have one. They are the 41CX in the halfnut version.

So is the halfnut? version the same as a cx except for the look of the keyboard or is there a difference in the key functions? Do the keys need to be assigned?
