The above are advertisements for various Hewlett-Packard calculators that appeared in numerous newspapers and technical publications. These collection of Hewlett-Packard Advertisement Archives vault to take a fresh look at some timeless classics. Ads here date back to first HP Calculator in 1972.

Bill Hewlett, founder of HP, wished for a smaller version of the company’s electronic calculator, one he could carry in his shirt pocket. When the marketing department questioned who would pay 10 times the going price of a slide rule, Bill Hewlett simply said that he would. Thus, a whole new market was born.

This is HP’s heritage of quality and reliability.

    Dear Madeline, few years back I spoke to you about replacing my 41CV. You referred me to Monica and I got a 17bll+; 48gll; 50g and several 12c. The HPs are great calculators (especially with their RPN feature) but they all seem to share a common problem: their pouches falls to bits over time. May I know what materials are they made of and what can I do about it; especially when we need to bring them out of our home or office? Thank you!
