early TI-35 looks at first glance slightly different from some later models, the
silver faceplate seems to be brighter.
From much higher interest is Mike Sebastian's Calculator forensics test, it reported 9.177087103 instead of 9.177087088. We know this number from earlier calculators like the TI-30 with an internal precision of 10 digits instead the expected 11 digits!
Dismantling this TI-35 reveals indeed a surprise, the calculator chips reads TP0324-4N instead the common TP0324-4NL designation.
We noticed slightly differences in the finish of the keyboard between some TI-35 calculators and added this page just for reference.
