This calculator looks like a smaller (and probably cheaper)
version of the Casio fx-702p. This is a very small calculator
programmable using a variant on the BASIC language. It can also be
used for direct calculations. Functions can be selected using
keys, or simply typed.
It doesn't have a lot of memory, the standard version has 1568 memory steps and 26 memories. The version I own has 3616 steps (using a 2k memory module).
This calculator has one huge drawback. It doesn't have a rerun function. In other words, if you type in a long calculation and make a mistake, the complete calculation has to be retyped. And the calculator doesn't tell you where in your calculation the mistake occurs.
This calculator has been followed up by the Casio fx-720p and the Casio fx-730p.
