The production of the original TI-68 - introduced 1989 - was shifted in the year 1995 to Malaysia and later to China.
You'll notice small changes in the design of
the calculator, e.g. position of the logos and size of the letters on the keys.
Digging deeper into the differences reveals some other - minor - changes:
The plastic bezel around the display looks much cheaper and the screws around the battery compartment found their way back to the calculator.
The financial sibling of the TI-68, the BA II PLUS received the same changes. You get a picture of both models here.
Missing your TI-68? Missing your TI-68? Think about the TI-30X Pro MultiView introduced in 2010 and its twin TI-36X Pro.
