Reverse Polish Notation Calculators

Reverse Polish Notation (RPN) is an efficient, stack-based method for operating an electronic calculator. Most Hewlett-Packard calculators (e.g. HP-35s and HP-50g) use RPN, as do a few programming languages like Forth. With a little practice, you'll find that RPN is much easier, faster, and less error-prone than the algebraic logic that comes built in to most calculators.

Besides buying a Hewlett-Packard calculator, here are some other options if you'd like to try RPN:
