More progress but needs a bit of work

Excerpt: I have owned many HP calculators. I began with a 1977 vintage HP-32. I then bought a 41C, a 28C, a 48g and now this HP-50g. During that time I also bought an HP-22 for my son to use in school.
Summary: I purchased this calculator after my HP 48g finally bit the dust (purchased in 1998). I'm an engineer by profession and loved my RPN calulator with a visible stack on screen. I do not utilize 90% of this calculator's capabilities.
Summary: Got this to replace my HP48GX after 14 years of use. Maybe it's not a fair comparison, since the HP48GX was 3x the cost of this one, but the first impression is that the 50g has a cheaper feel to it, both in the plastic the case is made from and the feel of the buttons when you press them.
Summary: When you need a REAL calculator, you can't get much better than this. I was impressed with the power and features of this calculator, from the large screen to the SD Card slot and everything in between. I also like the option of algebraic or RPN entry methods.
The most well-designed hand-held computer in the market!

Summary: This is, perhaps, the most well-designed hand-held computer in the market. Though it feels "less" robust than the 48G series (its rounded edges tend to get slippery - what, never had sweaty palms during exams?!?) - perhaps a textured phenolic-type resin casing in black/gun-metal color?
Summary: This is the best graphing calculator I have ever used. Granted, I am a bit biased since I really like RPN. Battery life is great. It is a bit heavy but nothing exaggerated. The new price drop makes this totally worth it.
