Comment A cheap high school or student calculator much like one of the countless Casio versions which dominate the market (eg see the striking similarity to the fx-86DE). Maybe HP wants to get a share of this market. Personally, if find the look of the 300s+ quite appealing. But other than the look it doesn't seem to have any noticably advantage - for sure the keys are bad as eyerwhere else. Too bad that it cannot be switched to RPN mode.

Note: Press the S<=>D key to toggle between symbolic display (of fractions and constants) and floating point number display.
