Walter, that's a really intriguing question, and I really had to think about it. I'm a Civil Engineer, so in real life there's really no way to encounter a NaN that's not an error, so I started thinking about your question more abstractly. I encounter the inverse pretty regularly- that is, I find te...

It's only a waste of time if you're not personally interested in it. That said, the 17-series would be a challenge, since it's from an era when HP was copyrighting their ROMs, and 3rd party solutions are closed source.

I had the DM 41 (same hardware as the 15) before the 42 was available, and didn't notice any problems with the keyboard. The keyboard on the 42 is generally fine; problems seem to be the exception, rather than the rule. I wouldn't worry too much about it, it really is a beautiful product.
