Got three in this morning 8:00 am:
I assume the date convention for production in the 21st week of 2007 still holds?? or has that been dissolved since the Chinese took over production?
Couple of comments:
1. DONT press on the LCD... it is quite sensitive and becomes BLACK easily and takes several (8-10) seconds to recover from bruising in response to normal forces (no pun intended).
2. Not sure why the R/S and Stat key keep moving around so much with the 32s-42s-35s progression...
3. I was trying to read the manual while driving to work.. also not a good idea. It is certainly longer than any recent manuals.. we'll see in the next few days if they managed to get both quality and quantity in to the binding. (sorry, no spirals, just perfect bound).
4. Case is bulky.. I stuffed the 35s immediately into one of the Pioneer leather cases from the 90's.. much better fit without the cheesy PDA feel. With the vintage flap-top leather case it FEELS like an instrument, not some metrosexual clothing accessory that would work as well with my calculator as with an iPOD (don't have one anyway and don't need one).
