Believe it or not, calculators are more than just tools to get a job done for the majority of people who populate this forum or at least who participate on it. This is no different to people feeling a totally irrational attachment to their car, motorcycle, Hi-Fi system or whatever.

Many of the guys here collect calculators, I'm one. This is no different to collecting, say, stamps. What is the point of collecting old stamps that can't even be used to send a letter? There is no practical reason to it. Do I need nearly 150 calculators to do my job? Certainly not. Is there a practical point to running NumWorks firmware on a Prime? Nope, but it's an interesting exercise.
