Besides my 41cx which I use every day, I have the HP-71B as well, and I do not feel at home at all with its BASIC for doing calculations, even though I used it heavily for five years. I don't ever want to use a non-RPN calculator again.

I agree. I started using algebraic calculators in middle school, up to a fx-8000g with which I concluded the technical institute in mechanics. At university I used a 48s rpn and I found it fantastic. Now after years I restarted studying physics again but the hp48 no longer works for the keyboard problem, so I picked up the algebraic calculator of the guys but I was about to throw up ...
I bought a 50g and I'm rejuvenated for 20 years: my brain is RPN Smile

Hardware: Hp48S - Hp50g - HP39gII
