This feature is even more powerful. In equation mode you are not limited to a simple REGZ or REGT, you can do things like REGT*SQRT(REGZ) and even more. In fact you can evaluate a complete formula in one single program line.

Equation mode is a very powerful way of evaluting, solving and integrating equations. It can even solve equations symbolically and return a direct solution without iteration. This is something the HP41 lacks completely. But, more important: the 35s was never designed as a successor to the HP41. This was the 42s, and later maybe the 48/50 series. The 35s is the successor of the 33s, or maybe the 34C if you compare calculators from the HP41 era. It's a midrange calculator, and in this regard it's an excellent tool. In many respects it is even more powerful than the 41 series: it's more accurate (12 digits instead of 10), has a wider working range (1E+/-499 instead of 1E+/-99), it offers HP Solve and Integrate and it runs 3x as fast as the 41. It does complex math, handles 2D- and 3D vectors and has a lot of additional and useful functions and features (RCL-arithmetics, constants, Gamma, regression, fraction mode etc. etc. etc.). I am using both models almost daily, so I think I may say this, although I still love my 1981 41C. ;-)
