RE: [Off-topic] HP Prime is for students... What about professionals?
As Matthias proposed, perhaps with relatively small firmware/hardware change they can create a "pro" version, then every student that graduates would (in theory) have a good reason to buy a new HP Prime Pro, instead of keep using the same Prime forever.
It also creates a sense of competition between students, those having the "Pro" version can brag more, therefore will try to get daddy to pay for the Pro model at a premium.
Isn't it how phone companies do it? A negligible and worthless improvement becomes "the next big thing" and they get to sell phones all over again to the very same people. People are used to that, so they would fall for it.
Perhaps the next Prime should be waterproof, and that's all it needs for students to buy it again. Then the next gen should have interchangeable colored backplates, complete with a surprise collectable sticker inside the battery compartment!
Only a few would leave the production line with a sticker with TW's face, appealing also to the desperate collectors. I know a few people in this forum would buy 4 or 5 Primes just to see if they are lucky enough to get the rare sticker.
