HP48 is more acceptable since it is not GFX calculator? I have been amusing myself reading what gåågle have to say on the matter (typical applause of puritism and the glorification of the "right way").

PS, Btw. Logan have you tested out the 4th shift ?? aka user keyboard layer, makes huge improvement since you can just assign any userRPL program or build in function to any key you want or use it as default layer and replace all default supporting keys with your "scientific functionality". Industrial grade label maker do make wonders too for those custom keys, since HP refuged to draw good designs / tricks from the past to 50g (41 keyboard stencils) (ok, well some of the good designs..).

I'm not sure I understand what you are getting at in the first paragraph above. People ridiculing graphing calculators, or people ridiculing calculators that are non-graphing?

That's good to know about the 50g, since it has many features I like (CAS, infinite stack). I guess customization is nice, I'm just not sure it's for me.
