I know this is just for fun, and I'm not trying to be argumentative. But from my perspective, a 34s is no more "out of box" than any other unit with customized software installed. Don't get me wrong -- I'm very respectful and appreciative of the 34s and what it can do in a package with no more memory than it has. It is truly a wonderful achievement, and I'm definitely a big fan.

If you change your original assertion to saying the 34s is the fastest (and easiest) handheld that can evaluate that expression to 31 digits, then I would have to agree with you.
