Arrow Financial Calculator?

I have a Texas Instruments BA II Plus. It seems nice, I'm sure I'm not using all its features thoguth.
I got it back around 1998, I found it in the computer lab where I worked, along with e TI-35 scientific. Both of which seems to be serving me well.

Should I get another calculator? One that does more? If so which one? I'm not a financial guru, I'm just starting out (having a bit of trouble actually with managerial accounting) SHould I hit ebay and get a particular one?
I like this BA II becdause it has hundreds seperators.

If it is doing what you need and you are happy with it, then why get something else? If you are uncertain of it's many functions you can generally find a user manual on line.

The main issue is the textbook has these HP commands - it tells me what to enter and those same keystrokes don't do anything on the Texas I. unit.

For example... I enter a number and hit N for the number of years. I then enter another number and hit FV for future value. The N value I supposedly enteres is now gone and I can't scroll through the whole worksheet.
What am I doing wrong? I tried hitting ENTER, but that doesn't do anything.

I'm a computer guy and this decade old calculator is kicking my ass.
