Summary: Doesn't hold the same nostalgia as my HP48SX from my school days but this model is packed with functions. My boys are starting to grasp RPN and embracing it which was the whole point for getting them the calculators. Highly recommended for future engineers and scientists.
Summary: WOW! - nice calculator once you LEARN how to use it! In many ways it falls short in the ease of use vs. the 50g. Things like directly reasigning keys. It also lacks many of the functions of the 50g like time / date. Also the menu of math / physical constants are meager in comparison! There is no periodic table as well. These are just a few things that came up from the begining.
Summary: (From a Physics student point of view) Really nice calculator. I am using it mostly in RPN mode, and works great for me. Really fast calculator. Haven't programmed myself yet in it but installed third a party program (Graph3D) and the 3D graphs show and rotate blazingly fast. Battery life is great so far as well. Touch screen is perfect and with the new firmware update you can zoom in and out pinching in or out with your two fingers.
Summary: This is a very nice piece of technological gadget actually. I have bought this as a Christmas gift to myself and do not need it for my daily work and study. This is my first graphing calculator. But I am an engineer and hobbyist about such gadgets. So, it is really interesting to have such a piece of machinery because you know you can do really advanced calculations with it. First thing I have done is to charge it and update the firmware to the latest.
