Just a redesign of the original TI-34 II introduced already in 1999. 

A more detailed description of the changes could be found here.

TI-34_II_2004_PCB.jpg (54241 Byte)The latest TI-34 II looks familiar to us, the leading SR-16 designation is known from Kinpo Electronics, Inc.. Compared with a TI-34 II manufactured in 2000 we noticed only a slight revision from SR-160-11-1 to SR-160-12. We purchased another TI-34 II in 2010 and found a completely different internal construction!

Don't miss the redesigned TI-30X IIB, TI-30X IIS, TI-36X II, TI-40 Collège II, and BA II PLUS.

Texas Instruments complemented both the TI-30X IIB and TI-30X IIS with the next generation scientific calculators TI-30XB MultiView resp. TI-30XS MultiView in June 2007. The successor of the TI-34 II was announced May 9, 2007, too but the TI-34 MultiView didn't hit the stores together with its sibblings.
