This neat calculator does not look like a Texas Instruments product. But you'll notice easily that it is related to the P8F alias TXI-8644A calculator. An identical housing was used for the P8M alias TXI-8646A calculator, too.
This calculator looks very unfamiliar compared to other Texas Instruments calculators. Notice the combined [-=] and [+=] keys not known from calculators sold by TI.
Don't miss the rare TXI-8661A based on the Exactra 23 calculator and the electronic Wizard distributed by Western Auto.
