I ran some numbers through the "Mortgage Estimator" - while using the "Down Payment" selection, and using 150000 for the price, 30 as Term / number of years, and 6 as Interest rate, and 1000 as montly payment, the final result was a negative number.
It is nice to see Microsoft taking the time to update something as simple as the Calculator in Windows 7.. I like the new and improved one alot... now if only my new keyboard had a calculator button on it by default... I miss that button... hahaha
Maybe an "always on top" choice would be nice, as well as the capacity to remember what was being done over many shut downs like my Blackberry does. Good calculator but pretty useless for anything outside of what is going on per session. I came to this thread because I'm looking for something better.
I was amazed to discover, after over ten years of knowing it is part of Windows that there is no "Always on top" option. That doesn't seem sensible. This "Speed Crunch" app is more than great. I can export and import sessions. That rocks.
Mike, try the link I posted above. I was amazed at what I found. It takes a few minutes to get the "know" of the calculator, but after you figure it out, it blows the Microsoft version away. You can export and import sessions, "always on top," it retains history over multiple sessions and a bunch of things Microsoft doesn't address.
