Decisions?
When you got out in the am do you ever have trouble deciding which calc to use today? Kind of like which watch to wear or which tie to wear?

RE: Decisions?
I had a boss in about 1990 who carried quite a few calculators in his attache case. He had a nice little tilt stand to put on on the desk. Every so often, with no visible reason, he would put the one calc back in the attache case and get out another one and put it on the tilt stand. I guess they just made him feel good inside. Big Grin

RE: Decisions?
Which one of the CL's to use today???

Though decisions like this make our lives complicated ;-)

I may also pull the 42S out of the drawer... just to check some 41Z/SandMath/Matrix results...

Cheers,
'AM

RE: Decisions?
My Flight deck sees:

97 (rarely due to size)
67
48 GX with black lcd screen
42S *
41CL *
34C
29C
19C
15C

The 42s with 32k is the goto machine because I have a PDF file/routine along with all my specialty aviation routines. Of course it mimics the 41cl with the blinky module for the ir printer.

As you can see, all programmable with continuous memory. Recently added a Sharp PC-1201, neat machine, fully merged key strokes and continuous memory along with the green fluorescent display.

Cheers, Geoff

Daily driver is a newer 35S at work, and occasionally I'll bring one of my 67's there to play around with. I almost always use a 67 at home, occasionally a 21.

RE: Decisions?
My primary service machine is a fully blown 71b. I like the large keyboard and the Turbo 41 ability the Translator Pac gives me. RAM is fine with the CMT Ram 32 in the card reader port.

The secondary machine is an HP48GX with a 1MB card and the Bringslid Finance pac.

The tertiary is my new 67. But that is mostly for fun. still, I find myself carrying 2 of the three most times.

RE: Decisions?
At the office, on my desk, I have always two: HP 32sII and HP 48SX (are my favorite and by their color, are beautiful).
To my classes I always carry a 11c and 35s
To my meetings I go with a 15c (everyone quietly watch it. No one asks me what is that rarity so beautiful...)

In my car always carry a 14b, when I go to the bank and other "simple tasks ..."

All of these use it daily, it is not a difficult decision

Best Regards

8-))

I always have two calculators with me.
The first one is always a HP-41C (CLV3, CLV2 or CX+NoV64/Clonix-D) and for the second one,
I take a different one each week, which allows me to play with all my calculators at fixed intervals.

Best wishes,

Sylvain

RE: Decisions?
I also bring a different calculator each day at work. Most of the time it is an HP calculator but I have some TI, Sharp and Casio too.

For the HPs it is:

HP-67
HP-48GII
HP-50G
WP-34s
HP-35s
HP Prime

and soon my Xmas gift : HP-34C

My HP-9845 is a bit too cumbersome

RE: Decisions?
Either a 15C or 15C LE

Or lately a 30b I picked up at Office Depot for $12 (and needs to be flashed -> 34s)

Sometimes a 50g

And always the iPhone free42, thank you Thomas.
