The 11C utilized RPN logic and incorporated some non-programmable features such as Hyperbolic and Inverse Hyperbolic Trigonometric functions, Combinations, Permutations, Factorial, Absolute Value and Percentage Change.  It also has 20 storage registers, indirect storage register addressing, Gamma function, and 203 step programming.  The 11C had half the memory of the 15C and twice as much as the lower cost 10C.

HP engineers wanted to make the display for the 11C easier to read then previous calculators hence the switch to a large LCD.  They also utilized urethane foam washers to help absorb any shock and it was implied that it could withstand a drop from shirt pocket level to the floor.  The HP 11C can be opened via screws located under the rubber feet on the back of the unit.
