Funny you mention this, Julianne. The HP25 Hmm not a 25C but real close is also used a lot. On the HPC a second stack which carried the imaginary parts of four complex hp-155c was added instead. And then rediscover the HP 15C? Used book in very good condition.

Later, in high school, my physics teacher, had an HP calculator which could read little magnetic strips: This spawned a bunch of research about RPN which I logged to my blog:. HP Corvallis calculator operations had already been moved to Australia easu not long after in the Australian operation was shutdown and the calculator division was moved to Singapore.

Their answer was that the HP32SII provides all the functions of the HPC, and more, and that reintroducing an old calculator is as expensive as making a new one from scratch. You’ll be surprised by some of the titles in this gallery! I still use it nearly as my sole calculator I might progtamming replaced the batteries once.

Oh wait, Apple Macs were mentioned too. I can choose proogramming the 10B, the 10C and the 12C. If you mention the 15C to a nerds of a certain age, our eyes grow misty at the utter perfection of it. The buttons are large and well separated, and there are no more esy no fewer than you could want. Being a Land Surveyor it had a hard life out on site in all weathers.


There are plenty of non-white middle class people and affluent educated yuppies, with their own affectations and pretensions, but stuff like that site needs make them invisible to make its joke. I never had an HP calculator in my youth, anyway when I was an undergraduate student we prograjming slide rules and teletypes to access a computer. The only difference with the original being that some functions will run up to times quicker.

The 15C operates with a memory stack, which when operating with RPN allows you to perform complex calculations with no need hte parentheses. Some cover wear, may contain a few marks. They are heathens who do not know the true religion of RPN. Once I found a scan of the 15C manual, I was all set. Login to your Account X.

The lack of alphabetic characters on the HPC also means that it is accepted in exams where newer HP calculators are rejected because they could be used to store notes and formulae. For the 2 previous decades I had a slide rule which I still have somewhere in a drawer. I can second this feature that yp-15c RPN prevents to much desire from other people to borrow it but I think it soon needs some new batteries and I vaguely remember of having them changed once already in the past.


I was quite impressed. The business geeks are just as crazy about the HP 12C. The HP15C was truly a classic — it was part of a series: I never had one of these and ans it, because I already had a TI programmable calculator and was too cheap to spring for another. Mine lasted for more than 20 years before it was destroyed by a fire in my ;rogramming Anyway, you can react to the lost of yours: The first HP was just appearing when I was still in college. World of Science News: It happened only a few times but I consider a finite stack depth to be a bug rather than a feature even though the HP manual lists an application where the finite depth is actually used.

One of the cool features is that it has a huge number of storage locations. Unfortunately, by now it also has a few faulty pixels. I keep my favorite constants in various locations and use for temporary storage.

I lost it in an airplane seat back pocket and have never gotten over it. This could be disabled to save memory, which was limited, especially since the other innovation was that matrix arithmetic commands were provided.

The best hope for having a revived series is to look to non-HP sources — i. I had my HP15c from to I was always prkgramming of those that had one.
