None of the people I worked with have a HP (except recently a 17BII owner who shared my office).
So far I have few posts here (sort of a lurker) but I've had 8 HPs along the line, starting with an HP-45 back when I was only 17.
I miss several, especially the 67 (stolen) and the 15C (the one that did NOT survive being run over by a car), but lately I've started to get the itch...
I have 4 now, and OF COURSE will get at least one 35S.
Anyway, 2 coworkers have 42S's, my neighbor has a 15C, my ex-boss an 11C, and just today I saw that another has a 28S. Every time I see someone whip out their calculator, I want to reach for my wallet!
I want them all, darn it! Is there a support group, or at least a calculator-junkie credit union?
Nonetheless, I'm deeply addicted to these little marvels. I just had kept a 41CX and a 12C.
I started with the excuse that I wanted to get a 21 to replace the one stolen (to me) in high school. Afterwards, it came to a 34C that I used to own a couple of years later. And a 25C. And a 41C which was my very first 41 (before I get the CX) and all the others (check link).
And that makes a 4000 euros expense...
Fortunately, my wife loves me. Sometimes, I wonder if I deserve her...
