I love the CASIO FX9860G.



Until today I use it at work, with a emulation SW.

It's a beauty, does all kinds of engineering stuff.

Until you find all the issues/bugs in it.  Open/LibreOffice Calc is a lot better

Archimedes for iOS. I have a beautiful TI SR-50 on my desk too, but I've used it about once this year because Archimedes is just that good.

HP 35s here.

Not as powerful as my former 50g but I can keep how it works in my head :)

I have the more modern TI & HP models but I prefer, and use, my HP48GX.

Other tools include wxMaxima, MATLAB, Fortran, Desmos.com, Symbolab.com and others.

I got an old Texas Instruments TI-92 PLUS.

I like how I can go back to the calculations using the arrow keys to check for typos and alter them.

HP45.  I love that calculator.  I have the calculator case still, but I have no recollection what might have happened to it.

  LOL!  I was digging through a pile of stuff today and found a box for a HP-45 with the charger and original book.  I have no idea where the calculator went.

  What? No one has mentioned the HP 9100! Everyone needs a calculator that weighs 40 odd pounds and uses core memory and a masked off CRT display! https://www.hpmuseum.org/hp9100.htm

As pretty as that display is, I'll have to stick with the Wang 700 for the tape drive instead of magnetic card. (Unless there is an accessory adaptor or something).

Nah. All these altoffices, i dislike them very much. They put buttons and menus in the wrong places, so it takes ages to find them. Time is money, excel is cheap. Not to mention, I can log directly into a report with a 34465A in excel. By pressing buttons. Try doing this in any of the altoffices. Or any calculator.

FX991D.

It has a persisted ENG mode and is simple direct entry.

Almost all regularly used functions are single keystrokes, the exception being x<>y which is shifted.

Also almost identical functionally are: FX570D, FX570AD, FX570CD, FX115D, FX991D and FX100D. Some are without solar, and some have a slightly different form factor.

Wolfram Products are the most powerful calculator I came across

For example

Wolfram Mathematica

Wolframalpha

Right now I am a bored EE, but when I was a student Wolfram was the hottest shit.

Mine is about 34 years old and still works perfect.
Here's a picture. Enlarge and enjoy. ;D
