HP 12c 35th Anniversary Edition?
Hello.

The HP 12c will turn 35 next year, if I'm not mistaken.

I know it is still early for such a question, but I was just wondering whether there will be a 35th Anniversary Edition?

Thank you and best,
Ignem

I know the 30th anniversary, but nothining about 35th.

By the way, there is nothing extraordinary on the 30th.

I wish there was a anniversary edition for the 15c and 41cx (expandability with modern hardware).

Cheers

Well there has been for the 41cx - it's called the 41CL and offers all one may wish for a modern version and then much more!

The best date we have for the 12C intro date is 16 September, 1981, for what it is worth.

The front page of HP Key Notes Volume 5 Number 3 (Sept-Dec 1981) begins with "On September 16, 1981, Hewlett-Packard released two new "slim-line" programmable calculators: the HP-11C Programmable Scientific Calculator and the HP-12C Programmable Financial Calculator...."

Hi Jake.

Looks like I raised my question way too early. Let's see if and what HP will present to us next year. :-)

This may also depend on the inventory of 30th anniversary editions they still have...

Best,
Ignem

It's a safe bet that HP has no 12CAE's in stock.

So there is hope that they will create another AE. :-)

If they came out with an enhanced version, maybe adding more memory or trig functions, that would be awfully nice. Just sticking a "35th AE" sticker on it would only make for another opportunity to pluck down a bunch of money and stick this on a shelf somewhere. HP's suppose to innovate not make collectables (and ink for their printers). Somewhere in HP's labs they're supposed to be building a whole new computer architecture using memrsitor technology. How about putting that in a calculator!

HP's innovation, of late, appears to be focused on defining the single most complex company split in history. Each side has to know exactly what not to do. Sigh...
