It is genuine. I'd assume 39gs hit the market so poorly, which has made Kinpo end up with tones of inventories. Those wasted inventories were meant to be recycled or go to landfill. But the recycler decided to save some and sell them online at scrap price.

[Video comparing wiggliness of buttons on HP Prime versus TI NSpire CX was here.]

I don't mind the wiggly buttons much on the NSpire, but its touchpad / cursor key combo does my head in!

From what I saw in that video, the operation keys on the nSpire (* / + - ) wiggle like anything, and are also half the size of normal keys. Not only that, but they decided to pair them up! Ack!

I don't know the rationale for pairing them up like that, since it means the rubber domes will always be pushed down at a slight angle for those keys. In practice, it doesn't seem to make much difference to me, although I haven't used the calculator all that much. Overlaying the touchpad over the cursor and select buttons causes more issues for me, as it makes it very easy to select the wrong menu item accidentally!

Who knows the brand SHRAP ?

Reminds me of how riddled with typos the 1977 encyclopedic “Everything You’ve Always Wanted To Know About RPN (But Were Afraid To Ask)” was.
