Hp41 was the best, do not change anything.
Maybe that's the answer. If someone could shove the 41 CX rom into the DM42, then we could be reassigning keys and manually typing in functions like it was 1979.

I would not buy an DM42 landscape.
I would and I'm not alone.

Hem...

I would not buy a DM42 landscape... the DM41 puzzles me as a landscape overlay, quite not usable...

Where are the operator keys (+-*/) in the middle of nowhere ?

Don’t touch the overlay, please.

May I ask you for a little bit of patience?

Yeah but without the hardware connectivity of the 41CX, most of the functionality is gone for me. It might as well be any other RPN calculator.

I’ve seen the light a long time before 1979, but HP41 was a kinda rebirth... and still amazed.
