wrote the year 1989 when Texas Instruments started the US-built campaign.
Together with the TI-7100 other models like the TI-7000,
TI-7400 were introduced for
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"!
If you feel familiar with the TI-7100 - compare it with the original design introduced in 1988 with a different nameplate: TI-306.
The last US-built calculator was the TI-7140. Don't miss the TI-8230 printing desktop calculator manufactured in the U.S.A., too.
