Folded. Had promised myself I would never buy a "modern" HP calculator again.
I have had 3 35s units so far, and it's been 2 years only since the first one. Bought the 3rd one just yesterday. Fingers crossed.

I am lucky enough to live near a Frys store. A few weeks ago they had the 35s on sale for $29 so I got a couple. I already have an older one, made in China, and the buttons are a bit sketchy. Some are a bit mushy so it's hard to know if the click registered or not. Of course I got this calculator used from TAS so I don't know what it was like new.
Anyway, one new 35s I opened is made in the Philippines and the buttons are a bit different. They seem a bit stiffer, no mushy feel, and they have a much more clear and distinct click. Only time will tell if they stay this way or get mushy. For now I'm happy though. I mostly use the calculator for fractions at work. Any calculator would work really, but I have my RPN tendencies when under pressure.

Edit: In case anyone was curious, the Philippines serial number I have starts with PHA. Maybe everyone else was already aware of this, but I haven't seen a Philippines version before.
