Cheapest HP RPN, does have basic scientific functions.
on October 20, 2014
I'm an engineer who has used a HP RPN calculators for most of my life at this point, and can't stand to use a standard calculator. I have an HP-48sx (and a backup gx) but wanted something smaller, lighter, to carry around. This appears to be the cheapest RPN calculator HP sells currently. Even though it is targeted to business folks, it has the core trig functions, etc. (although some, like inverse trig, are down in menus, ew). It's bulkier than I would have liked, but much lighter than my 48. It doesn't use its two-line display to display two levels of the stack, which is stupid. I plan to mod my to the WP34s (look it up), which will turn it into a over-featured scientific beast. The keys are good, but not as good as the old days.
Meanwhile, HP, make the $10-$20 basic RPN scientific calculator--alongside your algebraic models in that bracket.
