RE: HP 17bii + Incomplete Calculator Deception
Think the time progression as well.
All HP12C / CP variants  no trig functions despite my pleas HP10B  no trig functions HP14B  no trig functions HP17B  no trig functions HP19B  trig functions HP17BII  no trig functions HP19BII  trig functions HP10BII  no trig functions LOT OF TIME here HP17BII+  no trig functions  might be the same microcode as 17BII in different ID HP20B  trig functions HP30B  trig functions HP10BII+  trig functions YAY! So the HP17BII is MUCH older than the HP20b etc. The 17BII+ is of the same era internally, so you can't really compare the current models with trig to the old ones without. It is perfectly fair to wonder why the old did not have trig, but that's a different question than the original comparing different era machines. FWIW, a group of us begged HP to add trig to the financial line back in 2005 (?). I like to think the HP 10BII+ eventually grew out of that once Tim Wessman arrived! :)
