I am an Electrical Engineer and I own many HP calculators. In the financial area, I mainly act as a teacher, being Financial Math the main subject. I have one of each of the following: HP10BII, HP14B (Pioneer, original... good girl!), HP17BII, HP17BII+ and HP19BII. I also have two HP38C, one HP38E and one HP37E.
When teaching specific HP12C courses, I like to have some extra calculators with me in the classroom (there are always some students without calculators...), so I have four HP12C (one with three batteries, earlier nodel), four HP12C Platinum (one of the new series) and one HP12C Prestige (I'm waiting for a 25th. Aniv. unit). If I have to take only one of these with me for personal use, I take one of the three first-series Platinum and leave the others 'safe', at home.
Maybe having a newer Platinum in the pocket and leaving a 1981 HP12C at home is safer.
But this is just a thought of mine; please, if you do not feel like buying a new HP12C Platinum, simply disregard this suggestion.
