HP 35s
Message #1 Posted by Ken Cambier on 30 July 2007, 2:56 p.m.

Just got a new 35s and it works nice. It actually comes close to the 11c and 15c. Only one problem. Is it just me or are the yellow and blue function keys goofy? They seem refer to the keyboard layout of the 33s. Shouldn't they just be arrow-up for yellow and arrow-down for blue? Any thoughts?

Yes they are goofy that way. Lots of babble about that already.

You should search through the threads here, there is a lot already in discussion that you might find interesting.

Perhaps someone has already noted this, but is clear for me that, since the LCD mask has been developed for other models like the 33s, the shift symbols in the keyboard must match the LCD indicators. Hence, the arrows. Of course, I would have preferred shift keys with no arrows or, for a stronger retro look, marked as "f" and "g".
