Cheap RPN
For anyone who wants a less-than $16 new non-hp RPN:
http://www.walmart.com/ip/Compucessory-C...00&veh=cse

I have nothing to do with this business. This is posted just in case someone is interested in an alternate version of the 12c. It is cheaper than mine was when they were fresh out, and i hear that it is the Official Calculator of Futurama's Gunther.

RE: Cheap RPN
Nice little thing (except that the ENTER key is way too small Smile ), for this price I'd give it a go... but I haven't seen it around here in Europe. BTW I have to confess that it is the first time I hear about a non Hp RPN machine. Are there others?

I can't believe that this is still around. Here's my review of it from about 4 years ago.

RE: Cheap RPN
Tugdual;
There are more non-hp RPN models than HPs. Heathkit, APF, Priveleg, National Semiconductor, Novus, Corvus, Omron, Garrett, Electronika, Sinclair, Prinztronic, Commodore ect and re-badged versions of those and others by GE, Hiradastechnika, Qualitron, Universal, Norman, RCA, Dismac, along with completely original bodies using Nat Semi ROMs.

HP was equal to the best and certainly the most stubborn.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
And I have to admit it Katie; I bought mine back then because of your not-glowing description.

My name is Den.....
hello Den.
I am an RPN addict.

If you refer to historic none-HP, then National Semiconductor made a passable 4-stack RPN 100 step programmanble back in the 70s. Still have it somewhere, it got me through college.

A couple of years ago I picked up a Victor V12 (HP12c Pt clone) for $4.99 at Amazon. It's OK. Not an HP, but it works, and the price wasn't bad.
