Quick Reference (PDF)
Comment HP's last Woodstock model. A very cute little unit! Like all the Woodstocks very small and handy. Compared to the HP-25C it is much more powerful and overcomes all of the former's programming limitations: Twice as much program memory, subroutine calls, numeric labels, instruction insertion and deletion and more. Most importantly it fixes the HP-25C's number termination bug - or was that a feature? 
The only thing that didn't change compared to the HP-25C is execution speed. 
When compared with Classic models it falls in the category of the HP-67 but lacks the card reader.  Compared to Voyager models it's feature set comes close to the HP-11C.
Feature wise the unit is identical to the HP-19C.
