Product Alerts   
The most advanced HP graphing calculator, the 50G offers the greatest flexibility and power for dedicated professionals in mathematics, science, and engineering, and for university students. The 50G graphing calculator has 2.5 MB of memory, an amply sized viewing screen with excellent contrast, and choice of 2D and 3D graphing displays. It features a USB connection, and three ways of entering data, the favored HP RPN notation, as well as algebraic and text options. The 50G's more than 2300 embedded functions contribute to its flexibility and ease of use.
Product Summary   
The 50G returns HP's graphing series of calculators to the more traditional appearance, using dark black for the body, and white, orange and yellow for the function shift keys. The back shell is textured to provide a secure grip.

New features that the 50G adds to its predecessor is the full equation library found in the 48G series, and it has a true RS232 connection as well as the IrDA and USB ports. One of the most criticized features of the 50G's predecessor is the keyboard, which has been redesigned.

The 50G is ideal for engineering, surveying, mathematical sciences, and statistics.
