    Favorite Calculator Replacement?

    Random question, but I'm looking for a nice free (or cheap) calculator program to replace the not-so-great one included with WM. I'm not looking for any kind of crazy graphing/engineering/financial calculator -- just a simple one like the original, but with a better interface. Scientific is okay, and something handy like unit conversion would be a big plus, but not necessary.

    I use 1-calc, and yes, it cost $30. To me, it is worth it. Does so much. I wish MS would stop shipping that crappy calculator.

    not bad at all... the downside is that you have to have something open (say reply to a text message) where you can put the front keys to numbers in order to use the front keypad to enter digits into the calculator

    hope that makes sense.

    IMHO, the best option is HiCalc. It's fantastic.

    Hicalc is very nice but pretty large of a program. i never use anything other than basic calc functions so i have no need for a calc that is 3meg.

    but it is a very nice calc.

    Ever since college (actually grad school) I've gotten hooked on the RPN interface. So my basic RPN calculator is RaysRPN:
    Ray's RPN Calculator
    I can even use the number pad on the 760 to input!

    I use 1-Calc Lite. Its free and from the name, I am assuming its the "watered down version" of 1-Calc.

    Google Calc 98. It's a free scientific calculator and units convertor. Lots of configurations you can use.

    I googled "Google Calc 98" and none of the top hits seem relevant. Could you please post a link?

    Thanks,

    CoolCalc is what I use. Mainly for the Hex and Dates.
    Been there. Done that. Can't remember.

    I use FingersNToes V2.1
    However, only guys can use v2.1, ladies are stuck with v2.0.
    To be honest I prefer it that way.
    I wouldn't say I've been missing it Bob.

    Sorry about that. I meant to google "Calc 98" There is a free version and a new enhanced version 5.6 for which there is a charge. Here's the link. Home Page

    Mark, I think you are incorrect my friend. When you were in grad school it was chisel and slate!
