HP Vintage 12c and 15c Calculator

HP Celebrates Its Retro Calculations

HP celebrated the 30th birthday of one of their most iconic pre-personal computer designs this week, their financial calculators. To commemorate the anniversary of what is now ubiquitous in businesses and classrooms, the company is bringing back the calculator, along with a scientific version, in their original, limited-edition designs.

The retro style 12c financial calculator was the first to use the landscape layout and tiny replaceable batteries to let the device fit in a shirt pocket. Though it's currently available as a mobile app, the 15c scientific calculator is also making a comeback. The vintage look remains, but with a processing speed 100 times faster than the old version. The financial calculator is available for $80 and the scientific is $100. Sure, you can use the calculator on your phone or computer for graphing homework and finances, but those are so boringly modern.

my dad still has his financial calc from when he graduated college some 35 years ago. it still works beautifully. i fully expect to inherit it from him in another 20-30 years. something tells me this reproduction won't be made with the same quality of the old ones (when he bought his NEW, it cost him $45. you do the math. ;) ).
