it a small desktop calculator or a large handheld? From the designation "TI-1795" it
is clearly categorized as a desktop product, from the size it could be a handheld like the TI-508.
Dismantling this TI-1795 manufactured in August 1988 by Compal Electronics in Taiwan reveals a rather simple construction based on probably a Sharp single-chip calculator circuit.
This TI-1795 introduced in 1984 started a line of everlasting calculators, compare it with the TI-1795+ and the TI-1795SV.
In 1988 the design of the TI-1795 was slightly changed before production was shifted to Thailand in 1991.
The TI-1775 put similar specifications in a foldable housing while the TI-1796 added a battery backup and sports a 10 digits display.
