RE: Introduction and Thankyou
Thanks everyone for the welcome.
So it begins, I guess, I already have a platinum with the silver background for the keys, and a newer kinpo platinum. Picked both up cheap on eBay, one second hand and one new. I just recently saw a USA made 12c that was going cheap but can't seen to find it now. The 19b I bid on seems to have the battery door in good condition but the face of the calculator has a small crack. Figure I can probably find other broken ones and piece a complete one together. Or there are usually a few around at around 75-100 AUD, I just saw one with the manual that looked almost perfect. If I manage to get the 17bii+ approved for use at uni no doubt I'll pick one of those up but I love the form factor of the 12c so will most likely stick with learning how to get the most out of it.
Are there any reviews around for the book that was mentioned? A quick Google didn't show anything but I thought maybe some one here would know. And does Gene Wright still post on these forums? I'd be interested in picking up his book as well.
Now I have two things to hide shamefully from my wife- how much I spend on science fiction novels and how many calculators I own! She was rather confused when the second platinum turned up in the mail, asking "Don't you already have a calculator?"
The Swiss micros were something I had a look at, I'd be interested to hear from people who have experience with then firsthand as to how they feel compared to the HP, one of the things I love about the 12c is the hinged, clicky buttons. Also probably pick up one of those Victor models too.

Thanks again,
Zac
