RE: HP 32S II - worth buying?
As it turns out the 32SII I bought came with a case that doesn't seem quite right. It is 5.75" (14.7 cm) long, so the calculator fits but it sticks out a bit.

The bottom of the case also appears to have a very slight radius, leading me to believe it may be correct for a 10Bii (not a 10B which I think has dimensions identical to other Pioneers).

Can someone please confirm the correct long dimension of a 32SII case? I'm thinking about 6" ought to be about right.

On that subject I had still been looking for a replacement 12C and finally met with the seller. It was new in the box, opened but never used, manual, case etc. but he was asking only $30 so I sort of reluctantly bought it. Made in Brazil and better quality than the new 12C, so while I'm not really excited, it's OK. While I was there he said he had a second 12C and do I want it. I told him I already have one too many, but he asked if$10 would be OK? Well, OK. It also had a case and I needed one of them anyway and a case is worth about that much to me.

As it turns out... I took the second calculator home and it's not a 12C. It's a 16C! I called him back and asked if he knew that, he said no and apologized for not knowing, but he doesn't want it back - never got used to RPN and didn't like it. Happy to be rid of it.

So... yes God works in strange ways indeed.
