The TI-32 SOLAR is a unique calculator with respect to both its functionality and design. The keyboard layout looks at first glance very similiar to the TI-32 or even the TI-31 Solar, but it added e.g. binary calculations known from the TI-34. The design itself with the orange colored hinges for the tiltable display was a flash in the pan! Compare it with the rare TI-607 introduced in 1989.

Dismantling this TI-32 SOLAR manufactured in December 1988 in Taiwan reveals neither its manufacturer nor its calculator brain.
