RE: Sinclair Cambridge Scientific
Brings back memories. My first calculator was a Sinclair Cambridge when I was in high school in 1973. I upgraded to a Sinclair Oxford 300 (~20GBP, a lot of money to a 16-year-old in 1976!) This served me well until I got a TI58 (sadly not the C version or a TI59) for my 18th, and that got me all the way through graduate school in 1985. A few years ago I found a Sinclair Scientific Programmable on TAS -- the Oxford footprint, green fluorescent numbers, RPN, 24 steps, and inaccurate as all get-out. It's sitting unused in my drawer, complete with its library of programs. Some of the buttons are a bit dodgy, but it's still (I think) functional -- albeit of far less utility than all the other models I've accumulated over the years.
