Let's face it, the area of a calculator is over. Outside of education sector, there are just not that useful. Same here. All of my calculators are now WAY overpowered for what I use them for! With the narrow exception of the programmables, which are all set up to do "dice rolls" and common calculations for my onceamonth alldaySaturday roleplaying game (RPG)  ROTFL! Plus, I've forgotten probably 510 times the amount of math that I use on a daily basis, which is nothing harder than algebra and trig. Maybe once a year I have to do something with distributions, or statistics, or calculus... OUT come the textbooks and a dusty old copy of MATLAB or Mathematica! But I agree. One wants tactile feedback! My PC keyboards gives a subtle and nearly silent but clearly discernable "click!" My calculators should, too. Phonebased calculators are only for math emergencies when caught out in public! Daily drivers: 15c, 32sII, 35s, 41cx, 48g, WP 34s/31s. Favorite: 16c. Latest: 15ce, 48s, 50g.
