In 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 edition) and TI-1756. All three models got an audible instead of a tactile feedback of the entries.

Dismantling this TI-1756 manufactured in 1982 by an unknown OEM (original equipment manufacturer) doesn't reveal its genes.
