Quick question about Casio calculators

I need to buy a Casio FX-85 online for DD's exams. Can anyone tell me if it has rubber buttons or hard plastic buttons please? Random question, I know!

The reason is that her current calculator is a no-name cheapie and has hard plastic buttons; the problem is, when she does long calculations, she often gets the wrong answer because the buttons have a tendency to not press down fully.

Most modern calculators, especially Casio, won't have this issue. Most are hard.

Thanks. I guess I'll just order it and see then. Hopefully you're right smile!

It is the only scientific calculator worth looking at.

But why are you looking to buy online? Plenty of shops will have them in store. I saw an ad for one in Tesco £10, which ain't bad.

(Sorry, I am giving unasked for advice)

DS has FX-85. Buttons are plastic but quite shallow, if you see what I mean. He has never had the problem you describe.
Got ours quite cheaply from Smiths.

I got the non solar one (the 83?) For £4 or £5 is Asda a couple of weeks ago as DS1 lost his.
