Smart phone apps are handy but just don't do it for me. I'm a EE so the 42s looks great but prices of $200+ for used ones seems extravagant. I was very interested in the Swiss Micros 42L, either the landscape or portrait version, and would definitely consider one, even if that ends up being $200.

You can choose much cheaper option. Palm 515 or TX and great 42s emulator (Free42) by Thomas Okken. On TX an emulator of HP 48/49/50 (Power48) by Robert Hildinger can be used. I bought a few m515 and TX, second hand and very cheap, to use these emulators. Free42 on m515 has over 180KB of memory, on TX over 1MB. Palms' touch screen is very precise, no problems like on that nasty android devices.

BTW. Power48 can be tailored to emulate 50g as well. I tried to configure it but unfortunately with no success. Could anybody tell how to make Power48 emulate 50g?
