RE: HP Prime or HP 50g
Looking over the list of responses (so far), it looks like there could be a greater number of engineers, than students, who have purchased the Prime. While this may not be generally true, the idea that the Prime was targeted at the educational market, maybe missed the reality target?

Could it be there are more engineer types than students in the pot of Prime purchasers? (I'm also more in an engineering camp, with background in field telemetry and electronic / electrical systems for the last 50 years).

It may be easier to measure the educational market than the population of people generally aligned with engineering applications. Maybe hp's calculator return on investment would be greater if aimed towards a different target, at least at a different marketing vision.

I've only had the physical Prime for a couple of months, (using the emulator, previously), but to answer the original question from my personal point of view:

I have encountered nothing the 50g would do that I could not do with the Prime, except for communication with external hardware (SCADA systems, for example). The Prime is much faster, the display size much bigger, and the future has greater prospects than the 50g. I find the programming to be easier. So, that's why I'm inclined towards the Prime, as favorite for now.
