The TI-30Xa SE was only a short time available before it was discontinued December 2000. This calculator is nothing else of a hybrid between the TI-30Xa Solar and the housing of the TI-32 Explorer Plus. Don't miss its predecessor TI-30Xa SE released already in 1995. 

The extension "School Edition" wasn't limited to calculators, in 1987 an electronic toy found its way into the classrooms. Don't miss the wonderful Touch & Discover School Edition

The replacement of the TI-30Xa line is the 2-Line calculator TI-30X IIS. Please notice that in Germany the TI-30Xa Solar survived. View the TI-30 eco RS.

Texas Instruments failed with the TI-30Xa Solar School Edition introduced in 2005 and recalled it immediately.

Stokes Publishing Company, Inc. based in Sunnyvale, California sold a companion for the teacher, view the wonderful Scientific Plus.
