HP Prime lockup (not a complaint)
Perhaps I've bitten off more than I can chew with this calculator, but I've been itching to try it now for over a year and finally pulled the trigger. My daily school calculator is an Nspire CX CAS and I was interested to see how the two machines functioned side-by-side so the very first thing I did after charging and updating the OS through the connectivity kit was to input a vexing homework problem to compare results.

I asked the machines to find the derivative of sqrt(3x+sqrt(3x+sqrt(3x))) and the two calculators both spit out answers within a second. Impressive. Since the two displayed different results and the Prime wasn't set to simplify, I used the simplify softbutton. It locked up, stayed frozen for about 4 minutes and then rebooted.

So, this isn't a complaint about the lock up, but I've read that one of the devs wanted to know what people had been doing to the calculator prior to experiencing a lockup. In short, I'd done nothing except configure language, set the time and date and looked at the different setting menus. This command was the first one I'd asked the machine to do and it was fresh out of the retail packaging. I don't know if it's helpful or not but that's about as virgin a lockup as I can think of to offer you.

Thanks for this machine. It's pretty awesome and I'm nowhere capable of exceeding its capabilities!
