Expensive HP Prime?
I seem to recall reading that the HP Prime wasn't showing on the .uk website.
Its now listed here...but it appears to be more expensive http://m.hp.com/uk/en/products/calculators/index.do But if you don't need wireless capability, the older version can be had for just £155. If you do, its £1024. (For those unfamiliar with £, a useful first approximation is to just change "£" to "$"). I think I will carry on using the Android version...

Even ignoring the £1024 blooper, the prices are high direct from HP. I think I paid about £120 for my HP Prime from Amazon.co.uk.

It used to be about that... But the £ doesn't buy as much as it used to.
But £155 does seem a lot for the nonwireless version which I assume also has the lessreadable keyboard. Stephen Lewkowicz (G1CMZ) https://my.numworks.com/python/steveg1cmz

You should consider buy one in France (130€ = £114).
The wireless model is to be used in a classroom, it is made of a PC antenna for the teacher and 30 wireless modules for HP Primes of the students. It won't turn your Prime in a wireless tablet or equivalent. http://www8.hp.com/emea_middle_east/en/p...id=5448715
