But none of the products looks more beautiful than this Checkbook II and its twin. Due to the innovative membrane keypad its thickness is only 0.14" compared with nearly 0.30" of the original Checkbook calculator.
this Checkbook II calculator manufactured in 1985 reveals a very interesting
construction based on a plastic frame and a very thin foil with single-sided
traces instead the traditional printed circuit board (PCB).
The board itself uses only few components, and each one is thinner than usual. Even the package of the Toshiba T7752S single-chip calculator circuit is slimmer than the NEC uPD1833G found inside the first Checkbook products.

The successor of this Checkbook II was consequently named Checkbook III and brought a rather conventional design back.
