In the year 1982 Texas Instruments introduced not only cheap looking calculators manufactured in Taiwan like the TI-1015 or TI-1006 but some very stylish and thin calculators. 

TI-1754_1.jpg (54129 Byte)The line covers the TI-1754 (credit card sized), TI-1755 (golden trim) and TI-1756 (silver edition of the TI-1755). All three models got an audible instead of a tactile feedback of the entries.

Later credit card sized calculators like the TI-1780 and TI-1786 got a cheaper design.

Don't miss the Casio FIML CARD SL-800, a real credit card sized calculator with a thickness of only 0.030".
