Comment Inside the HP-6S there is only one sealed integrated circuit plus a label reading "HP127 REV0".
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!
