We wrote the year 1989 when Texas Instruments started the US-built campaign. Together with the TI-7000 other models like the TI-7100, TI-7200, TI-7300 and TI-7400 were introduced for Wal*Mart and other discounters.
And all carried the "Made in USA" logo. If
you read the small printed on the back of the calculator you'll notice the
sentence "With foreign and domestic components". If you opened the
calculator before reading, you would pronounce the word "foreign"!
This rare TI-7000 II looks very similar to the original TI-7000 and was introduced with the TI-7140 and TI-7300 II in 1994. The TI-7000 II, TI-7140 and TI-7300 II marks the last US-built calculators.
