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.
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".
