RE: Top three calculators ?
This thread can be a good complement to the the "most common calculator" in the forum actually.

Wikis are great, Contribute :)

Interesting. While I understand that the calculator is quite good. Why not some other models? Casio itself has similar newer models with likely more abilities (fx 5800P ?).

Of course a reason to use something could just be "because I want to".

Why the 50 before the Prime?

RE: Top three calculators ?
Simply because it is always handy:

1. Free42 for iPhone. My physical 42’s need some work (probably the press fitted ribbon cable has lost contact) and the Free42 has the same versatility and ease of programming as the originals.

2. HP15C & HP15C. Once again ease of use plus a great solver.

3. HP12C. Due to easy availablity and similarity to the 15C, I have using these for simple calculations and some programming experimentation.

RE: Top three calculators ?
1. 15c (can't believe I have had it for 20 years now) bought it used when I started university, still my go to calculator.
2. Probably 32Sii used it very heavily at school, very rarely nowadays though.
3. HP42S, WP34S, HP35 with multi emulator upgrade, Woodstock LP, EMU42, HP50G... I am just not sure which comes third...

Yes... because I use neither (although I have a Prime)

Please excuse my snarkiness, it's just that the relative merits of calculator 'A' vs calculator 'B' are a subject of vigorous arguments on these fora. See, for instance this thread.

Though the Prime is quite fast and has a nicer display, I find the 50g and RPL more efficient and intuitive than the Prime and its BASIC-like language.

Maybe the Continuous Memory...?!?
I have a perfect HP65, but I really hate if anything goes down with the power OFF.

Oh, that's cute & cool... the TI-58C. Why not a TI-59?

What? No HP-41CX?
