The Casio calculator is designed as a desk calculator, meaning it sits there ready for use, and does not skid across the desk when used.
I have no idea what price my employer paid for ours, but you can get these for about £35 these days.
They are the real McCoy, if you have ever seriously made do with a mobile phone calculator, for anything more than a simple sum, then you will understand the difficulties, these ones are designed with the term user-friendly in mind.
These have the usual large telephone style twelve digit display.
They also incorporate three Euro conversion rates, this is a useful feature for converting currencies, and it has a Tax function.
The Casio MX8v is a better specification version than the old ones.
The one year guarantee is standard. If you require any more details on this or any other Casio product, try the Website www.casio.co.uk
I can personally recommend this machine.
This little machine works off battery power, or the solar panel, which is very good until you try to use it in a shady corner.
These are available in any colour you like as long as it's black. Comes fitted with an OFF button for saving power.
Well spaced out keys.
Bright red ON button for easy recognition.
They are made by the Casio Computor Company Ltd, and I suppose they are famous for watches more than anything. They seem robust enough to last in a rough office environment, and they look good, come with a decent manual, and do the job a treat. All in all, I think they are a doddle to use, and ours has never let us down yet, and it certainly gets some stick.
