Re: DM41X Alternative key layout

Hello guys, go to the thread http://forum.swissmicros.com/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=2247 to beat you up. :evil: This thread is about the fact that there are at least two person who would prefer to have a DM41X-PGM available in a second version with a DM42 keyboard layout if possible. Without having to re...

Re: DM41X Alternative key layout

Are you still thinking that flocks of millennials are coming here to buy the DM41X, throwing away their TIs and CASIOs? :oops: I was born in 1983 so some would describe me as a millennial. I only discovered RPN a few years ago and it's changed my life (not an exaggeration). I'm also a physics teach...

Re: DM41X Alternative key layout

And why should the DM42 have to be seen as the touchstone platform? Just because we already own one? Well I have 20+ 41s, so? Me too... I will buy as many new Swissmicros designs as they will build... but I still prefer a "similar platform" with same keys layout, different printed faceplate for me ...

Re: DM41X Alternative key layout

... That's exactly what I don't care of: variations on vapourware. Can't we wait to see the WP43 materialize before pimping it up? ... Good tuning starts even before the vehicle is already on the road. Very often the manufacturer works hand in hand with the tuner, sometimes the tuning department be...

Re: DM41X Alternative key layout

I am in the first camp. Don't fool yourself: new users of a reissue of a 40+ y.o. calculator are highly unlikely. Users of the DM42... well they already have the DM42! Do they really need something externally alike, otherwise they will be confused and won't use the DM41X? I don't think so but, of c...

Re: DM41X Alternative key layout

I understand that the underlying program will be an emulator of the HP41CX so it will be 99.99% similar in programming to the original HP41CX. But the hardware platform, screen and keyboard, using DM42 platform will be different from original HP41CX. So the question is... Will DM41X customers be ma...

Re: DM41X

Yes 41st anniversary... I was a future IT guy at that time, oops I mean 1979/1980. We both were, then! These days, 40 years ago, I was eagerly awaiting for mine, after having booked it: coming back home from Uni I asked daily the shop lady if they finally delivered it. Had to wait until a week befo...

Hey guys,

Who can tell me when the DM41X will/could/should be Available ?

No perhaps, just WHEN !

It’s not a matter of price :roll:
From what Robert said, before july 2020, for the 41st anniversary.
Better ask Michael though, when he will officially announce it...
