Back-to-School 2018 

Texas Instruments started together with the retailer Target for the Back-to-School 2001 campaign the introduction of the TI-83 Plus in a translucent, blue design. This approach was very successful and retailer Walmart followed in 2003 with the TI-30X IIB, TI-30X IIS and TI-503SV in limited edition retail colors while Staples, the world's leading supplier of office products for small to large businesses joined the group in 2004 with a Lime Green TI-83 Plus. In Summer 2017 we located a total of 15 limited edition calculators from 7 different retailers.
