casio fx-3800p

similar in styling to the fx-4000p, this model is less sophisticated but a lot more accessible and easier to use. firstly, the display is segmented and the unit has no alpha capability. the program memory is limited to four short blind programs that cannot jump (except to loop to the start).

after using this model for a while i've become accustomed to its easy style of operation. no fuss, algebraic entry with an easy to read 10+2 screen and sensible buttons. as a scientific model it offers the usual features with 2d stats, linear regression, hyperbolics and number bases. only fractions is missing.
