This TI-503SV introduced together with the TI-1706SV and TI-1795SV a new calculator design style in 2003. Like the previous generation of the TI-503SV we still notice the rubber keys and a large display.

In 2004 we noticed in the Wal-Mart stores two variations of the TI-503SV sporting a red housing and a green housing. Competitor Target continued this idea in 2007 with a pink TI-503SV.
