The TI-1796SV looks great - you won't find any right angle in the design. Curious about the SV letters ? It is the abbreviation of "Super View" which implies the perfect reading of the LC-Display. 

TI-1796SV_PCB.jpg (61995 Byte)One of the advantages of this calculator is the usage of both solar cells and a small battery. Everything else is typical for a modern calculator manufactured in China.

Don't miss the TI-1795SV with only 8 digits display capability and the earlier TI-1796+.

A similar shaped housing was used with the -1796 introduced in the same year. Don't miss the rare prototype of the -1796.
