OK

2.6
Verdict: It has the same keys and functions as the original HP 12C but the case it comes in, is horrible. The old one had better quality; specifically with the material that is used. They also added a business card viewer/holder to the front of the case which I don't care for.
Pros: Lightweight
Cons:

Financial Calculator

5.0
Verdict: WOULD I RECOMMEND IT Yes, definitely. By improving the on the HP12C, HP has again demonstrated in the HP12cPAE and HP12cP version 2.0 that with the right effort even a good product design can be improved upon at the matured stage of its product life cycle.
Pros: I bought my first HP 12C in 1981 and am still using it. I decided to buy a second one so I can keep one at the office and one at home. I was pleasantly surprised to see that the HP 12C Platinum has all of the features that I like so much on my 1981 model, and has added some features not included on...
Cons: The only caution I would mention is that the RPN Reverse Polish Notation form of entry is different enough from the standard calculater mode that you will eather hate it or grow to hate the standard mode.

Taking Mine Back to the Store

5.0
Verdict: If you use any programming on the calculator, you will need to be a rocket scientist. There were books published for the old 12c that gave you programs to use and it is great. The new Platinum uses different "stacks" and the old programs do not work.
Pros: Looks nice
Cons: No supporting programs

Poor Quality and Customer Service

5.0
Verdict: I use this calculator for business. My last American made one worked well for 20 years. This made in China model has a key that misses after less than six months. HP will provide a warranty replacement, but indicates that they are out of stock of warranty replacement units.

HP 12C F2231A

2.0
Verdict: Going to use this calculator for my CFA level I exam. Very easy to use (there are guides online on how to use RPN). Comes with a handy hard leather case. Also have the Texas Instruments BA II Plus Professional, but I use my HP 12c Platinum calculator more than the TI BA II one.

Great finance calculator with amazing heritage

HP 12C F2231A

5.0
Verdict: I had an original 12C for years. Lost it, got a 17C about 10 years ago and the keys randomly did work from the day I got it. Finally gave up on it and got a 12C Platinum. Biggest upgrade for me from the 12C is the Algebraic mode (which means inputs are like a normal calculator, 2+2=4) and not...
