HP-28S extensively in my professional work (As some of you may know, I'm
a programmer), and it has a manufacture date of 1988.
I use them because I can't seem to find more modern replacements which
function as well as or are as durable as the older equipment I use. I
know for a fact that there are many programmers who zealously guard
their HP-16C Programmer's Calculators, which date from 1982.
