If you're wanting a scientific calculator forget about the HP49G+ and 89, those are bloated, large machines. Plus on the 89, you don't have RPN. What you're wanting is the HP33S, HP's newest scientific calculator. It supports a 4 line stack (like the 32SII models and probably some others), and 2 lines of the stack can be viewed at a time. This enables you to see the whole complex number - the real and the imaginary part. I've used it's prodecessor, the 32SII, and I use it the majority of the time over my 48GX, which is a mammoth of an RPN graphing calculator.
but the 89 does handle complex numbers the way he wanted, RPN or not.
For my own edififcation, RPN?
