after all that sa(i)d, one question: what sort of SW exist for the Xpander? What does it do?
I am not a collector at all, I use my calculators for personal/professional purposes, because I believe that's what calculators are for: to be used (that reminds me Toy Story-2). If they are broken, let's pack them and show everybody their look. I have 12 calculators (I recently bought an HP12C, cause I was invited to teach classes about its use), and ALL of them are used somehow. I bring both the HP41CV (halfnut) and the HP12C with me everywhere, just in case.
I have a fully working HP25 with original batt pack, manuals, QRG, dust cover (I use an Spice's charger because I don't have the original) and I think seriously about offering it for trading (41's IL components). I just did not post it yet. Why? Because I do not use it at all, and this condition teases me! A collector would find a better place for "her", but it still works fine. What to do?
That's why I'm asking what can one (that is NOT a collector)do with an Xpander that is not only exposing it as a trophy. Did ACO find the time to develop/port SW for the Xpander? I would like to know. For the records.
