The TI-5028 uses a much simpler hardware than the original TI-2800 Paperless Printer.
Instead an external RAM to store up to 99 lines of calculation results the TI-5028 uses a single-chip microcomputer. The drawback is the reduced storage capacity of only 45 lines.
Like its predecessor makes the TI-5028 use of two individual LC-displays.
The TI-5038 received the same cost optimization, compare it with the later TI-5038 II.
