Ok, I've now done the same with the picture from Wikipedia.
For the attachment I've reduced the size to 50% and changed it to JPG just to make the file smaller (but of course I still have the original size in PNG).
I also added 'CLEAR' to the backspace key, because newRPL supports this key - let me know if there are still other key labels working in newRPL, maybe I have removed too many of them.

Well, this large picture is certainly a problem for most users, because I'm quite sure that the vast majority doesn't have such a big screen (with a vertical solution of 1600 pixels) - that's almost a UltraHD-TV screen!
So I think it's not a good idea to make your newRPL simulator that big, half of the size would certainly be better (or at least make it resizable).

Now a few other questions:
1) should I remove the text 'HP 50g Graphing Calculator' and/or the HP-logo from the picture (and maybe replace it with 'newRPL')?
2) how should your newRPL program look?
a) Do you want the original HP50g picture and put your display exactly on the original place?
b) Or would you prefer something like my own HP50 skin (2nd attachment) with the display placed beside the calculator? (that would reduce the vertical size again a bit more, so it would fit on more notebook screens)
