The TI-1706 II got an enhanced keyboard compared to the original TI-1706 introduced two years earlier. The design is similar to the somewhat smaller TI-1100 II. The TI-1766 II uses similar keys but feels more valuable. Don't miss the TI-108 as the most successful derivative of the calculator line.

The TI-1106 calculator introduced one year later uses an identical housing but sports a +/- key instead the AC-key.

Within one year the design changed slightly, don't miss the later TI-1706 II. A similar calculator was introduced with the TI-1746.

With the TI-605 and TI-606 variations with a tiltable display appeared.
