HP Prime - Graphing Calculators South Africa

Almost 30 years ago with the release of the HP Graphing Calculator Series, Hewlett-Packard placed unique computing power in the hands of engineers and surveyors.

Allen Associates linked the magic of the 48 to the Survey 48 Software Suite and introduced it to users across the subcontinent. Compatibility was maintained within the Series, and like Survey 48, Survey 49 and 50 became a worthy companion on many a survey project.

Introducing the HP Prime

Following the discontinuation of the HP50g RPN, RPL calculator, focus has shifted to the recent newcomer to the HP stable, the HP Prime.

But does the HP Prime fill the void?

The HP Prime not only fills the void left by its predecessors but exceeds our every expectation. The HP Prime offers an affordable handheld solution while still equaling the rival PC-based systems.

The HP Prime Calculator Specifications

  • Touch-enabled, full-color handheld graphing calculator.
  • The speed of HP Prime compared to the HP50g is remarkable.
  • Available as mobile apps for Android and iOS.
  • HP provides a free connectivity kit that is used to transfer files and programmes between desktop and mobile versions quickly and easily.

For the full HP Prime specification.

The HP Prime Software

  • Based on the functionality of proven HP 50g software, but created for the high-end HP Prime graphing calculator.
  • Prime COGO is a completely integrated application combining all the functions to be accessed from a simple graphical user interface.
  • Prime COGO will run on the physical HP Prime calculators as well as on the HP Prime Pro app for Android / iOS / Windows / Mac.
