This machine is fascinating.
However 200 Euro is a hefty price tag for some people like me that lives on the poor side of Europe.
I will have to start putting money aside for this.

comparing the price to other new calculators with similar capabilities: It's a little more expensive or roughly the same price
comparing the price to a genuine HP42S in like new condition: It's a bargain
but really, there are no other calculators that enjoy the same sturdy hardware, great tactile feedback, RPN stack operation/programming interface, gorgeous display, processing power, swiss heritage and customer support.

The parts were promised to arrive by today Tuesday, but they're delayed until Friday :roll: I know that's not November anymore.
If nothing is missing sale starts on Saturday. I'll keep you posted in this thread ...

Personally, I prefer a solid product launched over a certain due date achieved. Beta samples have shown what may happen easily - those errors and glitches and manufacturing faults are perfectly ok there but won't be acceptable in a product listed for 200sfr. You can kill a small enterprise by complaints with ease.

I'm working on it, but I totally underestimated the overall time and effort needed to assemble them ...
I need another week to finish a reasonable amount before opening the gates.
