1) Instantly translates to "I / my eyes and brain" don't recognize any delay. The Canon F-766S is a solar based calculator with a 3V lithium support battery.
2) What else is shocking? Well, it is just a nice calculator:
- The display is the best I ever saw. The characters are large and have a perfect, adjustable contrast.
- It features in HEX,OCT and BIN mode e.g. XNOR
- It has 38 formulas programmed, e.g. E=Q/(4*PI*epsilon*r*r) and it requests the values with a prompting menue.
- It displays the "i" in complex calculations
- It has a very nice equation solver
- Gene W.: Six regression models: lin, log, exp, pwr, inv, quad
- Some goodies like 17 memories, LCM and GCD etc.
- And, by the way, the keyboard is very good. Not a solid click but more resistance than the lousy Sharps and average Casio keyboards. If you know the Canon F-710 etc - this one is much better!
The deal itself is much better than any Casio or Sharp calculator in the $10..$30 price range...
