    Casio FC-1000
    Graphic programmable financial calculator
    I'm sorry, but I will not reply to user manual requests or to dealer location inquiries anymore.

    Please read my FAQ page that might help you if you have any of these questions in mind.
    Feel free to contact me for any other question or comment regarding this machine!

    Special features :
    The first graphic screen to be used on a financial calculator!
    This device also uses a "trademark" Casio foldable casing that was used for a couple more devices.
    This is a neat little device!
    First of all (and that's a very personal point of view!) i love this foldable casing! Casio used it for a couple more devices (including a scientific programmable calculator and a databank/organizer), and each time, it was for a cool device.
    Second of all (and that's yet another very personal point of view!!) i've sometimes noticed that a "1000" reference in a Casio machine name often means an unusual machine in it's category.
    And this is where the FC-1000 proves me right! The FC-1000 is unusual both in the financial calculators world and in the Casio "FC" family : it is the first graphic financial calculator, with a powerful programming language, and (i've been told) advanced financial functions.
    It also has an "easy" menu navigation system making good use of the 7 keys below the display. How easy it actually is, i couldn't tell, however, because i'm not familiar at all with it's financial features!
    I was glad to find this one, it's a refreshing device in my basically scientifix oriented collection!

    Display : 96x64 pixels; 8 rows of 16 characters; B&W
