which is why i'm asking lol :P my main calculator is 3/4 years old atm but i have another calculator which i have had since year 7 (last year of A levels now) and it's still working
I have a calculator that I bought in 2001 which my sister now uses and it works perfectly fine. If you are worried about it then buy a new version of the same model, so there are little differences in layouts
Annoyingly, the calculator I've had since the start of college has given u the ghost less than a month before my final A2 Maths exams. It told me it was low on battery for ages, then when it finally ran out, I replaced the batteries and it still wouldn't work at all.
No idea what i'm going to do now - beg, steal, and/or borrow I think!
