I have found that I miss strokes (with 35s) and while rpn requires fewer key strokes, the extra force needed to push a key accompanied by the need to continuously check the screen for missed strokes slows me down. So for calculator/s I would like to stay away from HP however HP is my good books. My desktops have always been HPs, their website gives comprehensive information about all their product and they provide very good customer service here in Canada.

Please don't mix post-Fiorina's devices with an earlier, much more glorious, age.
You simply couldn't express such a thought if you would have used one of those HP calculators that had a proper keyboard. In your list it means, at least, 48 and 42 (but I didn't miss keystrokes on any 49, too).

You were only exposed to a 35s, bad luck. Please don't generalize.
