Texas Instruments TI-30  
Written by Accutron on 2015-06-06  

The Texas Instruments TI-30 is the quintessential student scientific calculator. Introduced in 1976 at a price of $24.95, the TI-30 offered a full scientific function set at a truly affordable price. The TI-30 marked the beginning of Texas Instruments' total domination over the high school and college scientific calculator market, a position which they still enjoy to this day. The TI-30 line has well over a dozen iterations spanning more than three decades, many of which have nothing more in common with the original TI-30 than their model number and market placement.
