Absolutely brilliant machine,
This review is from: Scientific Calculator With 30KB Ram - Black (Office Product)
At university over 25 years ago I had an HP41C which I though was superb, though there were a few things it wouldn't do, like hex and complex numbers. I love the HP RPN notation which is so intuitive and easy to use. When it was time to replace my current calc, I looked to see whether HP was still producing RPN calculators. The HP35S looks very similar to the HP41C and I wondered if it would live up to my high expectations.
It has none of the minor drawbacks of the older machine, and it does absolutely everthing (and more) that an engineer could want of a calculator (including hex and complex numbers.) Ergonomically it is spot on, the sloping keys are the same as they used to be. I read one review that complained about the keys - nonsense, they feel exactly the same as the old 41C and are just right.
I would not have any other calculator.
