A mere ten years ago I bought an HP-48GX graphing calculator with, yes, Reverse Polish notation as the default entry mode. It appears that this is still produced.

    I still have my HP-15 and HP-16 calculators, bought in the mid-eighties. Both still work perfectly well, and take up little space in my briefcase, and, of course, use RPN.

    HP -- at least before Carly Fiorino -- made solid hardware; I've heard their quality has gone downhill since Hewlett nor Packard stopped being involved in the company's operations.
