hello, i'm buying an HP Prime calc for someone in prison who has no access to downloading so i have to download apps before sending to him... just a few Qs for anyone since it's impossible to talk to a human on the HP website or by phone:
o are downloaded apps such as games, programs protected during a calc reset?
o does cemetech have a Chess game that can be downloaded? it's not in the HP Prime game selection.
o is ASM possible on the HP Prime?
o is the user manual (698 pgs) available for purchase in paperback (couldn't find on amazon or HP website) or just available as a computer download?
o does the calc come w/the current OS upgrade?

many thanks to anyone who can help us... JAMR
I don't know most of these offhand so I'll leave them to others, but I can offer some advice..

Probably not. Your best option would be to get it printed somewhere. On a quick search, looks like lulu.com can print it for about $22, which sounds quite reasonable. Your local copy shop might be competitive with that too.

It's probably loaded with the latest OS when manufactured, but who knows how long it might have been sitting in a warehouse. If you want to ensure it has the latest OS when you get it, you'll have to check and possibly upgrade it yourself.

If it's not in the Archives, it's probably not here. There are other calculator websites that you might check out, like Code Walrus (https://codewalr.us). You can also search google for one.


EDIT: Here's a list of games for the hp prime: https://www.hpcalc.org/prime/games/) and here is a chess game: https://www.hpcalc.org/details/7665. Enjoy!
