I still do…. The clock rate of the series is slower than the 41 in order to programning power and and all are in the KHz range which prgoramming slow even in its day which was typically MHz x ; compare than with GHz today — x. The real HP is now Agilent. I never had one of these and regret it, because I already had a TI programmable calculator and was too cheap to spring for another.
It programmng my constant pocket companion for a year. I inherited my HPC from my grandfather. Much too non-intuitive for simple little me. Unfortunately, by now it also has hp-15d few faulty pixels. If you mention the 15C to a nerds of a certain age, our eyes grow misty at the utter perfection of it. See Free 42 for an emulator that runs on other handheld devices. Login to your Account X. HP Corvallis calculator operations had already been moved to Australia and not long after in the Australian operation was shutdown and the calculator division was moved to Singapore.
I have a HP 10C, quite similar to the 15C except maybe for the battery which has to be changed every years.
Gave it away to a colleague when I rediscovered the 15C. I miss my TI86 — no way near as durable as that. And RPN was utterly natural, allowing rapid-fire calculations. And for many years after had a desktop HP calculator.
I could operate it in the dark. It includes source code, Linux and Windows binaries so you should be able to run it on your Linux system straight off. I had my HP15c from to See More Recent Categories Archives.
And let the bidding wars begin! I still have it. My loyalty is with the HP my first calculator — got me am college and the 41C I practically did backflips when I noticed it had alpha keys — used it in the Navy to do all kinds of stuff. At school, I love when folks easu me to borrow my calculator and gladly let them — for the 30 seconds it takes until they realize they have never even heard of RPN, much less know how to think in it.
Yet another innovation was the provision of all possible conditional tests, comparing the contents of the X register with either the Y register or the number zero. Later, in high school, my physics teacher, had an HP calculator which could read little magnetic strips: HP microprocessor — the only difference between them was the final metal mask layer which slightly customized the microcode with the largest difference being between the 41 and the coursse.
I practically wore out the keys doing calculations related to a chip problem we were having alpha particles causing memory errors. Spreadsheets were hardly widespread, and when one timed balls going down ramps or any other such repeated trial, doing repetitive calculations was a breeze on the 15C.
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.

Once I found a scan of the 15C manual, I was all set. If you arranged for an even digit in the 7th location, i.
The buttons are large and well separated, and there are no more or no fewer than you could want. Coursf could be disabled to save memory, which was limited, especially since the other innovation was that matrix arithmetic commands were provided. The HP15C was truly a classic — it was part of a series: It got me through calculus, physics, modern physics, statics, and circuits before my backpack got stolen. By the way, I really do not like the stuffwhitepeoplelike.
A year later, at a little company called Intel, I could afford one—with my own money, that is. They are heathens who do not know the true religion of RPN.
All used precisely the same custom-designed bit! Our Day return guarantee still applies.

I can choose from the 10B, the 10C and the 12C.

And, there are people out there writing emulators for it to run on the iPhone. This spawned a bunch of progrqmming about RPN which I logged to my blog:. My dad has that calculator and wears it in the pocket of his shirt every single day. I got my first 15C back in high school, and it was the only calculator I used for the next couple of decades.
