Hmm, that would be about a hundred bucks more than the earlier estimates. I'll probably wait for extremely glowing reviews before dropping that much.

ya you can buy a good used 42S for that much
I recently bought (a good one) on Ebay for $180
If you catch them new on Ebay you can sometimes get a pretty good deal.

True but they have old hardware in them, no warranty and certainly not the superb level of support given by the SwissMicros team!

Oh yes, I have no doubt they'll be nice calculators, and will be released once they're ready, but can I personally justify spending some $300 for a dedicated Free42 machine? Well, that remains to be seen.

I like my 41L, but if it had been much more than the ~$140 I paid, I may have reconsidered.

If the final product is like the prototype I tested at the Allschwil meeting, they are going to be a must have. Metal case, nice keyboard with solid feeling, great display... This memory display from Sharp has an amazing contrast, you don't get the ghosting associated with a matrix lcd...

RE: Swiss Micros announces DM42L
Yeah, I'd like the price to be lower but think it will be worth it to have a 42s that I can save programs off of and load them on quickly, the much bigger, nicer screen, and the ability to modify the firmware. Cool stuff!

If it's got a realtime clock with programmable alarms, IR compatibility with 82240 printers, and a speaker, I might be easier to convince.

Same here. With import extortion (elsewhere known as taxes) alone those €250 would become €400+

Very nice, but shouldn't the lock screen show a sleeping goose? :-)

The beta units are shipping so it shouldn't be too long before the final version ships. If you're interested in the progress, head over to
