Musings and comments about our common interest
We have received many questions on the leather vs PU cases for the new HP15c calculator.
The first comment that comes to mind is that it is not "either/or". When you select the Leather version, you get the leather case plus the case the HP15c comes with. So if and when one of the two breaks down, you still have the other.
The second: here is how the HP15c CE PU case looks like:
The leather case is a true Ubrique cowhide leather: (the one sold with the HP15c is the black model). However, it can be available in 3 colors: Burgundy, black and brown. The one that looks ok with the HP15c is the black one!
I have here some pictures of the Voyager cases (valid for the HP10c, HP11c, HP12c, HP12c Platinum, HP15c, HP15c LE and HP16c). The new colors Bordeaux and brown are shown here. You can see that the brown color is a very dark one - actually the closest to the original dark brown vinyl case of the original calculators!!
In the first picture, the order is brown - Bordeaux - black, while in the second the order is inverted: black - Bordeaux - brown
I have sent the first lot of Voyager cases to customers. Trust me: the look wonderful ,and have the leather texture of the original vinyl cases!!
