    Actually none exist unless you can pony up for a vintage HP printing RPN desk calculator.

    It is like having an HP printing desktop RPN calculator (when using pCalc) I highly recommend it for 10 bucks and you can email the tape etc.

    Actually back in the days 800+ bucks in todays dollar would it cost you to purchase one.

    Something like this. I have been looking for a good "Desktop RPN" Calc and it looks like the iPad solved this :)

    Good to know as I just paid over $400 for a new unopened HP calc to replace my over 20 year old HP.

    RPN forever for me!

    I bought an HP 48SX way back in my college years, in the early '90's. Paid like $400 for it back then, and have gone through two of them since. The keys tend to fail after a while. :( While not being made anymore, they can still be found on eBay used, w/an occasional new one showing up there.

    One of the first applications that I found and bought for my iPhone was i48, which simulates the i48 series.

    Yes indeed it was. I went through engineering school using an HP 41CX. Between the calculator and modules I probably had >$500 tied up in it.

    this was a great HP calculator

    even the box was robust and well designed.

    now I'm using RPN calc HD on my iPad...

    much lighter :)
