Well, perfect scientific calculators (PSC) are a long story. Not as easy to agree on as on a perfect wheel. Please just let me point you to the fact that we offer 2.5 approximations to a PSC: The WP 31S (featuring a primary pi), the WP 34S, and the 43S. You find plenty of information about them on this very forum. Enjoy!


I appreciate your reference to the WP-series of scientific calculators; I want to be more specific. . . Whether RPN or algebraic, a 'perfectly' designed scientific calculator for the non-professional (since it's doubtful manufacturers will ever create them again as in the days of the 1970s and 1980s) would be one that would have all of the first-functions, as space allows, that are very important to non-professional scientific use:

1. 1/X; pi; DMS; EE; ENG; DRG; sqrt; x^2; sin; cos; tan; log; ln; y^x; STO; RCL; Ab/c; Rec>Pol

Relegating the trigonometric HYP button to a second-function would free up a first-function button.

And all of this would be in a package no longer than 5-3/4". You would pick up this handy, elegant scientific calculator with an organized keypad, efficiently perform common calculations with minimum keystrokes, and it would have soundness in its mechanical design.

Do you share similar concerns in scientific calculators?
