HP Prime or HP 50g

RE: HP Prime or HP 50g
Hello,

2 things:
-------------------
First, of interest as we discuss user manuals, from another thread (http://www.hpmuseum.org/forum/thread-110...#pid100257)

"My daughter (13 years old, she likes mathematics) didn't even look at her calculator's manual, she simply isn't interested."

Shows what the current state of user manual reading is in the world now :-(


----------------------
Second a 2 part question (and I have inverted the 2 parts here as the first one is easy to answer):

"Is the Prime deficient relative to the 50g when it comes to complex numbers?"
Clearly no. Prime is better there...

"I don't understand the complex number difference between Prime and the 50g prevents the creation of more comprehensive EE library on the HP Prime."

I am not sure, The Prime "solve app" does not have complex number solving (but I do not think that the 50g had it either BTW as the Prime numerical solver uses the same code as the 50g)...
I am guessing that what is happening is that the person developing the EE library is trying to do thing in a way that might make sense for him and what his vision is, but does not work this way in Prime.
Kind of like trying to pound a screw with a hammer.
The problem is that the screw/hammer analogy, while it most likely explains the root of the problem, does not scale up here as the prime 'hammer' provide much more than just the iron head.
For example, the solve app provides the whole UI which is might need and can not find in other places in the calculator (unless he recreates it from scratch, which would be a lot of work). And he might want to use that UI....

Although I work for the HP calculator group, the views and opinions I post here are my own. I do not speak for HP.
