On that list, only the 30b offers trig functions that you would not have to program those functions yourself. If you decided on the HP 12CP or HP 17B II+ there are resources that have programs and equations to calculate the trig functions. All three listed have RPN as an option. The most readily available would be the HP 12C Platinum. If you decide on the HP 12C Platinum or and don't mind carrying around two calculators (instead of programming all the trig functions all the time only to erase it because something else is needed), consider complimenting it with a compact scientific calculator, like the Casio fx260 (it's $10 or less)). The HP 10BII+ is an alternative, however it is algebraic, not RPN, and it is not programmable. But you get the trig functions in addition to everything else Gene has listed out of the box.
