We wrote the year 1989 when Texas Instruments started the US-built campaign. Together with the TI-7300 other models like the TI-7000, TI-7100, TI-7200 and TI-7400 were introduced for Wal*Mart and other discounters. And all carried the "Made in USA" logo. If you read the small printed on the back of the calculator you'll notice the sentence "With foreign and domestic components".
If you opened the calculator before reading, you would pronounce the word "foreign"!
The design was continued with the new TI-7300 introduced three years later.
Texas Instruments introduced with the TI-7300 II in 1994 the successor of the TI-7300.
Don't miss the TI-8230 printing desktop calculator manufactured in the U.S.A., too.
