Understanding Units
I haven't bought the Prime yet but trying it out with the simulator and I don't seem to be able to understand how to use units. I read the manual but still at a loss.

RE: Understanding Units
I made some limited notes on it a while back, which say:
CONVERT() CONVERT(1_m,0_inch) Shortcuts 1_(m) Sto▸ _cm entering n_ automatically adds the () Menu Enter number, then Units key Can’t use Ans need to Copy/Paste answer from previous lines select from dimension and chosen unit touch Sto▸ on screen (or key) press Units key select to dimension and chosen unit Enter And see also the Units48 app if you like the HP48 way of doing units.

RE: Understanding Units
You know it's kind of me trying to find reasons to buy the Prime. So far it seems I would get lost instead. I have both the 48SX and GX and the 50G. I like the 48GX most but then the display is very low in contrast (the SX is even worst) so I ended up using the simulator all the time.

RE: Understanding Units
Yup, I know what you mean.
I think the Prime shines for graphics (especially interactive), and for algebraic symbolic maths. The stats tools are also excellent. For regular calculator use, I much prefer an RPN or RPL model.

RE: Understanding Units
The attached files show two screens to convert six feet to meters.
The process is easier on my hp35s and hp33s. Now I will have to figure out this problem on my hp50g.
