This grey TI-5130 is identical to the TI-5130 introduced two years earlier. The design changed to the "office grey" of the other calculators:
|• TI-5008 Pocket-sized, thermal printing
• TI-5010 Small-sized, standard paper
• TI-5032 Desktop-sized, battery option
• TI-5130 10-digits, standard paper
• TI-5142-III 12-digits, standard paper
• TI-5020 Non-printing, solar powered
The same housing was used two years later again with the TI-5045.
Dismantling this TI-5130 manufactured in 1983 reveals a completely revised printed circuit board (PCB) centered around a NEC uPD1234G single-chip calculator circuit versus the Mitsubishi M58680P chip of the original design.
The design of the TI-5130 was changed in 1985 again to a "brown" design scheme, matching the TI-5140 introduced in the same year.
Texas Instruments introduced already in 1986 with the TI-5130
II the successor of the TI-5130 with a completely different design language.
