Casio - fx-710p

Description

Brand: Casio
Model: fx-710p
Type: Basic-programmable pocket computer
Batteries: CR 2032 x 2
Lifetime: Introduced: unknown
Terminated: unknown
Notes: 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.

Peripherals

There exists at least a printer for this model, also memory modules are available (called Option Packs). The 710p I own has an Option Pack with a 2k memory extension.
