Notes: If only there was this kind of calculator when I was still at school... It is a scientific calculator, it is programmable in BASIC, it has a built-in MEMO function (t store all those little facts one might forget during tests) and what's more, it has a "Scientific Library" of 116 formulae, facts, ad built-in solutions! Forgot what d/dx y=e^x was (although that would be silly)? Just look it up. It's all in there, trigonometric functions, differentials, integration...

But considering these facts I reckon this calculator would have been forbidden.


There are various interfaces for this calculator, including a PC connectivity cable.
