Ummm... Yes.

The RPN in Prime, though capable and stable, is limited compared to a 50g, especially for an experienced 50g user. No RPL for example. And it's not directly programmable, though one can do limited manipulation on/off the stack.

HP has consistently stated that it is their goal to improve the RPN in Prime, and we expect they will, however for the time being, I would stick with your 50g if RPN is important. you can always upgrade to a Prime once the RPN has matured.

That said, the Prime does a huge amount of stuff a 50g can't do, so you should compare them to decide which is best.
I would describe it as the HP Prime's firmware is a jumble of apps that don't really play well together yet...

...we can only hope that they're still putting a good deal of effort into polishing (and adding functionality) to the existing firmware...

That said I think that the Prime's firmware is in much better shape today than when it was originally tossed out onto the market, as it's now half-baked rather than bloody raw...
