That looked like pretty interesting software until I saw the $100 price. Twice in the past year, I've bought a real 16C in great condition for around that price. No doubt the emulator took a lot of work, and looks nicely done, but I can't help womdering if he would sell 10x more if the price were 1/5 as much. Whatever, though. It is the author-publisher's prerogative to set the price. Pretty luck at$100, here in the UK 16C's rarely come up and so fetch decent prices from European bidders (no tax, delivery usually within a few days). The 16C I managed to get was $120 (excellent price) from an online used electronics dealer who also sold me the DM-16's for$40 each... they'd never heard of them and so just put them up at a silly price.

I just saw they had a DM-15L for \$40 also and just purchased it to replace my HP35S for my vectors/matrix course. Having used and liked the feel of the DM-16L my thoughts are the DM-15L will be a great maths platform (with the ability to save and restore state means can save decent size programs without worry).

Might seem sacrilege but I actually prefer the DM-16L over the HP-16C for day to day work, the LCD (with the bold font selected) has ultra-clarity way beyond the 16C and the build is superb, feels weighty and serious.
