The TI-30 LCD is actually only one half of a slimline calculator. The flat bottom of the case shell was removed and a stepped one accommodates 2 larger AA-cells instead of the 2 button style batteries. This modification was done for the European market, you'll locate the same bottom shell on the TI-2001 GTI or the TI-1032.
