RE: HP Prime or HP 50g
Keep in mind what was often stated here: "you are not targeted by the prime!".
HP does and will focus primarily on selling numbers in the education market. Owning the HP35 shows that you are one of those rare HP/RPN likers which are not what the prime is supposed to serve. Sad but true.
Although HP might change their orientation in the future and offer the whole package wich includes the scientific and engineering people, that is not at all sure.
By now I doubt it.

I have the prime and it is really fun playing with it, but the documentation is very poor (it is true: you depend on the internet) and still I find many things annoying and can't comprehend why they were designed the way they are. No I really can't understand why certain aspects were not noticed by HP or were ignored prior to launch.
As far as I know HP does not give insights into their roadmap and what can be expected in the future.
I almost never use it at work by now which is why I would propably not buy it again. But if you have the time and motivation to play with it, are willing to accept workarounds to achieve your goal and if gathering information in the internet is ok for you, it could be an option nonetheless.
