HP-12C just keeps on ticking…

HP-12C Financial Calculator

Note: I originally wrote and published this post in 2002.

What calculator do you use?

If you’re at all involved in financial analysis, you probably use the HP-12C from Hewlett Packard.

What an amazing machine — it was introduced in 1981 and is still being sold!

My HP-12C has been my trusty companion since the early-80’s — as I was just reminded when I reached for it to complete some quick financial reports!

At some point, won’t PC’s be just like this? Said differently, why would we keep upgrading our PC’s “endlessly” when the functionality we’ve got is “all we need”?
