Some of my favorite features include a huge equation library (find your equation in the list by name, plug in the values, and get the answer you're looking for), statistical charting capabilities, and uploadable programs (For example, I have a graphical Periodic Table on mine).
The manuals are pretty thorough (one user manual, one programming manual), and each one is about the size of a full-length novel.
Chances are, if you're considering this, then you're already familiar with RPN calculators (or at least familiar with stack-based operations on some level). But if you're not, it's okay. It's easy to learn and more efficient. You can also use it normally (infix style) by placing everything in single quotes, like this:
And with one button press, it will evaluate the expression for you, heeding all rules of precedence. While I don't recommend using this as a crutch, it can at least ease the transition from a standard infix calc. :-)

The cliche states that the only constant is change, but that's not really true. There are two constants. Change, and my 48G calculator. After leaving the company that I was previously working for, the calculator came home with me and didn't see much use for a while. It was probably a good couple of years.Read more ›
In a more serious vein, one nice thing you'll find about the HP calculators is that they have tons of third-party software written for them (including some great games!) The 48G is the latest in a line of calculators that's been around for years and years, which is how long it takes to get a good software base established. The competing calculators have no such user community. If you get the HP, you'll be able to rely on a community of people around the world to help you get the most out of your calculator, which is in many ways a pocket computer. Get the HP48G - you won't regret it!
