4FJ23AA vs. 2AP18AA - emax - 11-04-2020 01:21 PM

Today I received my HP Prime. It's my first HP calculator.

When I registered it at hp.com after entering my serial number, the site told me the model number - which I expected to be 2AP18AA. But instead I got 4FJ23AA.

Hardware version in system help tells 'D'.

Though the code 4FJ23AA suggests a later version than 2AP18AA, I'd like to know for sure: Is it a later or an earlier version than 2AP18AA?

Anybody with a similar number?
Anything known about this model?

A quick google search for 4FJ23AA and it looks like the prime family has had a model number bump.

Cant see any spec details online. Python version maybe? Directories?

I'm not certain, but this new sku could be for non-retail pkg which online sellers often prefer as it's easier to stock, pack, etc. and it often costs them a tiny bit less.

@emax - Was your Prime in the retail, plastic bubble packaging, or some more generic style, and what was the model info printed on the pkg?

@stevetuc: Thank you, I actually had found some pages via google, but they didn't tell me much - except that such a number exists.

> Python version maybe? Directories?
Haven't seen either of them on my Prime.

It was in a blister package. I just saw, that, astonishingly, the print on the cardboard says "2AP18AA#1BS", which differs from what the hp.com registration told me. Didn't see that before you asked.

Well, so much for that wag, sorry it was no help. Anyhow, thanks for posting this to raise awareness about the new sku; goggling it shows that it widely seen on many retailer websites, so apparently not too new, just not well known.

Here is a screenshot from the registration.

Where did you buy it? Did you buy it in Germany?
