For PC calculators, XCalc rocks.

For handhelds, I prefer the HP48-series. The HP49 is pretty flimsy as HP outsourced the manufacturing and the quality went to heck. The HP50 is much, much nicer. I have two HP48's that I picked up on eBay for $30-ish each.

The TI59 can use RS-232 == but can it do this?

I have Eurequa and Meter on my desktop, the only calculators up there. If anyone ever needs an analog meter face you can ship the request to me and I'll send back a PDF. I always complain to my wife that the blackberry doesn't have scientific functions on it.
Why, silly hare, are you fleeing from the fierce jaws of the lion now grown tame?

Got hooked/addicted on HP RPN, way back in HP-32 days, early 1970's...
- still have the family, HP-15, HP-32s, HP-45, HP-55, HP-67, all in good working order.

Purchased a couple of the celebration re-issues, HP-35s, released in 2007, for everyday use:

My original HP-35 is right next to my PC. It only works on AC now. But I have other HP battery powered calculators. I bought it just after the price drop from $400 to $300.

Got the HP-41 app for the I-Phone -- it's much faster -- but I don't know how I can make it talk on the HP-Interface Loop.
