Pros:Lightweight, pocketable, fast, works in a glimmer of light; exterior sticks to any surface.
Cons:New design is hard plastic which slides. Why did they change perfection.
I've had the earliest version of this calculator for about the last 10 years or more; in fact, this is the original product, I assume, and I like it better than the newer one illustrated since the one I have came in a foldable plastic covered exterior, (not solid and hinged) which formed the hinged connection of the two parts. It has been the most practical pocket calculator I have ever used - I use it at least 5 to ten times a day on my travels and at home - and even though the functions are "basic", as its title suggests, it is everything one needs on a day-to-day basis. Its solar charge is excellent, even in fairly subdued artificial light conditions and the response time is immediate. I would recommend this to anyone, especially since MY version (the early one) slides into one's pocket, even the small lapel one, quite inconspicuously. Pity they don't make the old style now!!!
