Set Appointment Duration 
The HP Palmtops assume that the appointments you enter in APPT are one hour long. The HP 200LX assumes a half hour appointment. For example, enter an appointment, set the Start time only and press (F10) (Done) and you'll notice that APPT sets the End time for one hour in the future on the 95/100LX and 33 minutes for the 200LX.
The only thing you can do on the 95LX is to manually tab down to the End time field and enter a new ending time. 
On the HP 100/200LX 
You can also manually enter a new End time on the 100/200LX. But better than that, you can change the default setting for the appointment duration. Go into APPT on the 100/200LX and press (MENU) Options Appointment Defaults. The first box in the Appointment Defaults screen is the Appointment Duration box. Move your cursor to that box and enter the new appointment duration. You can enter it in minutes (15, 30, 90, etc.) or in standard time format (0:30, 0:45, 1:30, etc.). Press (F10) when you're done. So if you set your appointment duration to 30 minutes and enter an appointment's Start time as 4:00 pm, the End time will default to 4:30 pm.

Calculate In Hp Calc's List Mode 
HP Calc's List mode lets you keep a running list of numbers and add them up (e.g. a shopping list, etc.). From HP Calc, press (MENU) List, then key in a number. Every time you press (ENTER), the cursor moves down one line. The list total appears at the bottom of the screen. 
But sometimes you may want to do a calculation first and put the result into the list. You could switch to Arith, do the calculation, but it's easier to stay in List mode and perform the calculation. For example, suppose you wanted to multiply 8 times 12 and place the product in the list. Press 8 * 12 = (ENTER) and 96 is entered into the list. The above format assumes that you are using Algebraic notation in your calculations. If you are using Reverse Polish Notation (RPN appears at the bottom left of your screen), you would press 8 = 12 * (ENTER).
