A small and handy unit. Of course the rubber keys don't feel at all
like "regular" HP calculator keys but they're ok. The metal housing
makes it feel sturdy and slightly heavy.
The solar and non-solar versions offer the same functions except that
the solar unit comes with an "AC" button instead of the non-solar's
"OFF" button. "AC" clears the summation register as well!
