The rare TI-308 Elle was introduced together with its three sibling TI-305, TI-306 and TI-307. All four calculators share a similar design with a valuable "look and feel".
Dismantling a TI-308 Elle reveals an identical printed circuit board (PCB) with the TI-305, the only differences are some removed keys. If you know that the TI-308 Elle was designed to attack women's handbag and TI's engineers omitted both the Memory and the [+/-] keys you may ask yourself...
Don't miss the wonderful TI-309 Nuance introducing a real eye catcher.
