Use of variables
During normal calculation, I often store intermediate results in memory.
On the 15C I would simply use STO 1 (2 keys) and RCL 1 (2 keys) for example. Simple, and I know where 1...0 keys are located without even looking at the keyboard.
On the Prime, I have to use letters. The location of letters is less natural than finding digits so I need to check the keyboard for those shiny orange paintings, very difficult to read. Ok say we use variable A top left.
Now I need to use Shift EEX (Sto) Alpha Vars (A). 4 keys.
So you'll say I can use the Sto> on screen and I'm only left with Alpha Vars. Still 3 keys. Except there is no Sto in RPN...

Am I missing a clever way to store intermediate results during calculations? Or the new paradigma is that everything is on screen and I should just pick results with the finger?
