The TI-45 Micro Scientific Printer was one of the nice applications of the miniaturized printing technologies introduced with the TI-5000. The calculating capabilities are similar to the TI-30 SLR, manufactured by Toshiba, too. A similar product was launched with the BA-45 Micro Business Manager.
If you are interested in the calculating accuracy of scientific calculators don't miss the Calculator forensics.
If you need not only scientific and statistical functions but even some program space you should go for the Canon FP-11P.
The paper used with this printer (PMF05228 1-1/2" wide and 14 Feet length) is still available at different sources, e.g. shoplet.com.
