|Desktop HP Model(s)|

Here is an idea that I have not seen from HP (or any lesser brand).
How about a desktop version of either a high end programmable (33/35 class) or even a graphing calculator (48/50 class) ???
Many of us work at the desktop regularly and, even with computer available, use hand calculator for rapid side work.
A large keyboard and display, combined with RPN and HP build quality would be greatly welcome. Printing could be by optional infrared or USB unit (Like 41 series had).
The building blocks for this exist in HP's toolkit, extension of keyboard and display packaging would be all that is needed to build this "DT" (DeskTop) or "MAX" series. I am not sure if printer still in production.
Consider the concept an updated 92/97 series.
What do you folks think of this ?????
HP seems to be getting a bit open to calculator advances and may be monitoring this forum as a stealth focus group/customer idea farm.
I lack Photoshop and CAD skills to put this in graphic or concept form....any ideas out there ???
