I will give some thought to the pawn shop idea too, and maybe garage sales.
In the meantime, I'm just going to set aside a bit of money every paycheck and save up.
Just for the heck of it, I put in a bid on a 32S on eBay, but seeing the prices that they're selling for, I don't think I will win it. My thought was that if the 32SII is being snatched up at such high prices, I just might be able to score the previous generation model or maybe an 11C for a reasonable price.
Maybe people on the internet are just too savvy with this type of thing, and I should find some sucker in the physical world who doesn't know what he has his hands... Hehehe
I DID have a 48GX, and as a basic scientific calculator, it was great. Once I started to try to figure out numeric integration and such on it, it seemed like only the programmers would be able to figure out how to do it. It was a real clunker though, and it cost me too much time on tests, so I sold it on eBay a couple years ago.
So to wrap up, I'm just looking for a durable, affordable, HP, RPN scientific calculator. I will look at some other models to see what's what.
PS - My gut feeling though, is that I should just save up some money and grab my ankles. But I would feel like a boob if HP DID come out with another RPN calculator after I paid a boatload of money for a used one...
