|What do you think about HP calculator development?|

I like to get a topic to discuss.
Since 2003, HP resumes to release new updates on its calculator line like the release of 12c Platinum (incl. 25th Anniversary Edition), 17bII+, 33s, 35s, 49G and 50G etc.
Up to now, HP has already released major updates on its calculators line.
In 2008, which current models should have a re-design? What new features should included if such models have a re-design?
Which legendary models should be re-released with upgrade? No matter as a special edition or as a new product. What kind of upgrade do you want?
Here are my own opinion. I use HP financial calculators. I have a silver 17bII+ for work. If HP further upgrade 17bII+, I hope HP can add MIRR function, improving the speed of HP SOLVE and Unit Conversion. The Printing Function on 17bII+ should enable users to print its result to a PC's inkjet or Laser printer. This will make 17bII+'s amortization table function more useful.
I also have a 12c Platinum 25th Anniversary Edition. I use it for public examination. 12c series is a legendary design. But for 12c platinum, I hope that HP can make display's font bolder like 12c. It will make the numbers look better.
Hope to see you to say what you think on this topic. Thank you.
