The HP Prime is 100x faster than HP50G. It is a big power in the hand, however the software is a complete return to the past and ideally made to make concurrence with Casio and TI. But this is another type of customers.

There are many many reasons. There are many drawbacks with the HP-Prime, compared to the previous HP model. Here an example:

Many more points can be given easily.
Just because they don't come with the Prime doesn't mean you can't use it for "serious" work. If you're a surveyor, you can write and load all kinds of programs useful to your job. If you're a civil, electrical, mechanical engineer, you can load programs for those fields, too. What ever the 50g can do, the Prime can do and do it much faster. It may not do it the same way (RPL vs HPPL) but it can do it.
