Said that, it is unlikely that quoting one user makes up for an authoritative answer. Once again a crack in the argument.

Maybe. It is a bit like yahoo forums, facebook, or youtube... There should be more moderation on these networks/webpages. Quora may sometime be actually quite helpful. It may give some information about very various things, without being to complex.

The best would be to have a list of features, sort of database of all functions and functionalities of the graphical HP calcs (48sx,...48gx,... until the last one: Prime). A bit like does TI at the back of products.

This would take too much time for HP since there are really a lot of things to list.

I kind of find the TI-83+ listing amusing since it were the calculator got me through my A-levels (CAS monsters are allowed today, lucky bastards), which I recall did contain geometry .. a lot of it.

Then it got me through my UAS degree, which again did have all things not suitable for it. I were too cheap to get the 50g, so I just did lust friends CAS monsters back then. For the 2nd tour in academic world I did get the 50g, wish I had it before, would have saved some nerves in differential and many other courses. Well maybe it is a good thing I did have unsuitable calculator back then it did force me to learn how to do it with "four banger" as I used it.
