Here is an HP trivia question.  How many HP Calculator models DO NOT ROUND in the last digit?

 
I have a new-to-me HP Calcualtor (from the Conference) that does 14 digits,
no guard digits, and does not round the answer.  2 / 3 = all sixes, NOT
0.666 666 666 666 7.  It does NOT end in 7.   I wonder how many others there
are.
