And it would be nice for your to give me pieces of advice on which device is good for programming.
The 35s has 999 program steps for each letter of the alphabet so it has almost 26.000 steps!

I don't know exactly how to do the math but I suspect you can't have as many program steps. I have several programs on mine, say about 1500 lines total, and those seem to be occupying about 10KB, so 1/3 of available user memory.

Juts bear in mind one thing. If you seek for occupation during vacation, the 34s will be a fun project but remember that you'll end up with an excellent concept... but a concept. On a practical standpoint a 34s is a calculator with an average keyboard covered with stickers, average case. The 35s has a pretty good keyboard, the case is a bit too big and the screen is inferior to the 34s but all together it is a much better product in my opinion. On a programming standpoint, the 34s is definitely superior to the 35s as Paul mentioned, but bear in mind that it will make the programming slightly more complex.
In short, pick the 34s to feel the passionated inspiration from the original team but if you need something a bit more conventional less for fun and more for practical use, the 35s is the way to go.
Finally one last word: the 50g remains the Hp pinnacle in my opinion so you may disappointed with either calculator ;-)
