RE: Sharp EL-5030 - powerful but unknown
There are many more such calcs with indirect addressing Smile but what I mentioned was *alphanumerical* such calcs. This narrows down the set to: HP-41C/CV/CX, 42S, 32S/32SII/33S/35S,.Casio fx-602p/601p, 4000p, 4500p, 4800p, 5800p, TI-66, Ti-88 (never released), TI-95 procalc, and Sharp EL-5030.
If you narrow this down to actually produced calcs featuring I/O, only the HP-41, the Casio fx-602p and the TI-95 (but is this a calculator ? so huge !) remain.
The 1981 fx-602p is a wonderful machine. Less powerful overall than the 41, but faster, slimmer, cheaper, more precision, classy and strongly built, cheaper I/O (ordinary tape), the only one that could rival it without being a BASIC computer !
