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.

Out of curiosity, is it the same program library as the Sinclair Cambridge Programmable?

And the buttons are super dodgy on my Cambridge Programmable too. Smile

Actually no, the Oxford programmable is only 24 steps, not 36.
