I've owned 3 HP-38C's. One I wore out, another I gave as a gift and the other I am currently using. While its successor, the HP-12C is overall a superior product, I prefer the vertical format and the red LED.

I'm with you there! Portrait orientation, red LED display and /,X,-,+ on the left-hand side of the keyboard where nature intended them to be.

Hear, hear!

RE: Most common calculators in the forum?
My current fleet consists of:

HP-55 Thrift Shop find.
HP-67 ebay purchase non-working. Now fully restored.
HP-67 ebay purchase non-working. Cannibalized for parts. Still hope of restoration.
HP-41CV With Card Reader, X-Functions, Time, and Advantage Modules.
HP-15C My first RPN Calculator purchased while in college in the 1980's.
HP-16C Also purchased while in college in the 1980's.
HP-32S
HP-32SII
HP-48G I bought this to try an RPL Machine but I just like the RPN that I grew up with...
HP-33C Provided by the company that I work for. Mostly sits on a shelf without batteries.
HP-35C Given to me as a gift. I even tried to like it...

DM-42 This is my daily driver. But I keep the 41-CV on my desk, too, for the Nerd factor.

MK-52 You don't need one of these but you just have to have one! Smile

National Semiconductor 4510

Wow, bold to admit you have one of these; most folks that have one simply don't mention it. ;-)

But this machine is interesting to me, not because of what it has/does, but more because all of the key decisions about it's feature set seemed to be about what NOT to include, with HP clearly struggling to make it fit between the -10B and the -17B. Relative to the 10 and 17 feature sets, it seems -11 or -12 would have been better choices but those model numbers had famous and successful predecessors, which left them with -13, and likely the marketing folks simply said NO to that.

And that's how HP-14B was selected... at least that's my theory.

Whenever I try to add two numbers on the 14B, say 3+4, I invariably press 3 INPUT 4 + and get "3.00+" as a result. That's when I usually notice the "=" key...
