Re: 43S News

@Walter I'm fine with swapping INTS and BITS. @BK42 Actually, the issue with the shifted functions on the shift keys has been (briefly) discussed very recently. ;-) I'd prefer the shift keys not having secondary functions too, but I don't have a good idea where to put SNAP and USER either (which sho...

Re: 43S News

Thank you Walter for the pointer. My personal feeling is that the Correct(TM) behaviour for the shift keys would be: F, F -> (no shift) F, G -> G G, F -> F G, G -> (no shift) This just feels very intuitive to me, and it would also save you one keypress when you have accidentally pressed the wrong sh...

Re: 43S News

What is untypical for HP though, is having shifted functions on the shift keys. This still feels slightly "wrong" to me.
But I vaguely remember that this has been discussed already. (Although I don't remember what the reasoning was for keeping it like that.)

Re: 43S News

I actually do like the full color shift keys, and it's not like they are not typical for HP.

Beautiful.

Re: 43S News

PS: And if I'll find out that I really use y^x so often that I want it directly on an unshifted key, there's always the User Mode.

Re: 43S News

tl;dr: I'm for option 2 with Pauli's suggestion. To elaborate a bit: My first impulse was option #1, because I tend to use y^x more often then most of the EXP menu. But otoh, this would make everything in EXP three keypresses away, instead of two. And, as you pointed out, as long as the menu is open...

Re: Printed manual for the 43S ?

Regarding the expected price of the calculator, I'm not sure the shipping costs will matter all that much, tbh.
And wouldn't you save shipping costs as well if you just order them together?

Re: Printed manual for the 43S ?

I would love a printed manual with proper metal ring binding. Would be interesting to know if most users would want one to be included with the calculator or if it's better sold as a separate product. The latter would have the benefit of being able to publish revised versions after firmware updates....
