The HP12c Platinum Edition builds on the legendary reputation of the original. Its processor is 6 times faster and it has 4 times as much memory as the original. To make it easy for people used to other calculators it accepts algebraic entry in addition to RPN. Over 130 built-in functions make it a top choice for real estate, banking, finance and business students.

The single line 10 digit display is easily readable at almost any angle. It has HP’s “rotate and click” keys that provide positive feedback that you’ve pressed the key, reducing the instance of keying errors.

For students, or anyone, new to financial calculators, this is an excellent place to start. The manual reads very like a mini-textbook, walking you through sample problems and situations followed by graphs and tables demonstrating the technique--and you can even check your results. The section on creating programs seems to address the more technically challenged, addressing in detail how you could possibly benefit from using programs, but it'll still help you get the job done.

4 out of 5 eggsGood financial calc

Pros: It's a great calculator that's pretty easy to use. Has all the financial functions needed for my uses - MBA school.

Cons: The only thing I don't like about this is the stack. I wish it could hold more than 2 numbers on the stack ala a scientific RPN calculator and that you could do things like swap numbers. I find myself having to store values to banks to bring them back later for evaluations. I knew this going in though.

5 out of 5 eggsBrings a smile to my face

Pros: It's a 12c

Cons: It's not $5

Other Thoughts: The HP 12C has to set some sort of record for profitability. R&D amortized 30 years ago, cost of manufacture probably around a buck, no marketing expenses... and they are selling them to this very day for $70! Just amazing.

Not being critical, mind you. I have one. But I marvel that (a) HP still sells them and (b) people still buy them--for a premium price.

5 out of 5 eggsCorrection to review below

Pros: See other

Cons: See other

Other Thoughts: My prev review stated there is no leather pouch like original - actually, there is a pouch. It is a leather fold-over with elastic sides. It protects the 12C, but is thicker, making it less convenient to carry around or in brief case. And the elasticized sides will invariably wear out earlier. Fancy, but not as good as the original simple slender pouch.

5 out of 5 eggsAn even better 12C

Pros: It's a 12C - the gold standard. The Plantinum edition comes with ~dozen addtnl formulas. The back plate cheat-sheet is alum now, b4 imprinted on the blk plastic and could wear thin. Display a tad more easily read than before.

Cons: The symbols for <shift> above the keys is a red now rather than the old yellow, not as easy to see. Doesn't come with the leather pouch like the original.

Other Thoughts: Replacement for my 12C which was 23 yrs old! - the LED display slowly eroded in the last few years. A superb instrument.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent service and product!

Pros: The HP 12C Platinum calculator is much faster than the traditional 12c. The 12c is the only calculator to use rpn, and this newer model, for a few dollars more, can also be switch to algebraic mode, making it more versatile.

I did a side by side comparison of the two 12c models, and the Platinum is instantaneous in its calculations. The 12C traditional one take a bit longer, but not too bad if that is the one that you end up buying.

Cons: I cannot think of any.

Other Thoughts: had the best price and inexpensive shipping using UPS Second Day. I ordered the product on a Thursday afternoon and got it Monday morning. Very impressive. Good tracking of shipment too.
