HP Calculator links

The Museum of HP Calculators (MoHPC)

I would say the most important HP calculator site, a virtual museum of vintage HP calculators from the HP-9100s to the HP-48s. Beside presentations of the machines here is a *lot* of information on programming, collecting and more... What nails this as the HP calculator site is the forum. It seems to be the Rick's cafe for HP calculator crowd. Hanging out here and explore it's archive may be the best way to discover the HP calculator online universe.


The place that give me hopes my old pal the HP-41CV and me once again will hack together.

Speaking about the HP-41...

Fantastic scan of HP-41's user's manual and card reader manual by this site.

HP-41 machines flew on the early space shuttle missions, here is an article from the Smithsonian Institution's National Air and Space Museum web site about it.

However it must be mention that the HP-41C was not the first hp calculator to go to space, as told by this old HP press release the HP-35 (first scientific handheld calculator) and HP-65 (first magnetic card-programmable handheld calculator) had been there before: A museum visitor's picture and a cool picture from a HP poster.
