HP Prime G2 RPN use
I am a G2 newbie and I have had the G2 only about a week so forgive me if this is a stupid question.
It is a very powerful calculator for graphing and solving, but sometimes I pick it up for a quick calculation, like an HP41 and it's different. Does the G2 have a classic RPN interface? I don't seem to be able to do something like: 1 ENTER 2 + It appears like the G2 requires 1 + 2 ENTER, which is not RPN Thanks, Victor

Press [shift]>[home] to enter settings, then select the drop down menu next to 'Entry:' and select RPN.
I don't use RPN myself, but I've heard many times that RPN on the Prime is not nearly as good as HP's previous calculators. Cemetech  YouTube

RE: HP Prime G2 RPN use
I like both entry modes.
For math calculations, I find that Textbook mode is better because of readability and error fixing. For every day quick calculations, I find RPN is the best. Well, this means I have to go to the settings every time? No, because of this program: Code:
Usage: in User keyboard mode, press Menu. Or simply: Shift Help Menu. It toggles from RPN to Textbook, and vice versa. Regards. Thibault  not collector but in love with the few HP models I own  Also musician : http://walruspark.co

Prime has all the RPN functionality of old HP series calcuators, no problem there.. Its programming does not include RPN commands since it's a totally different architecture.
