Nice machine!  :) I tend to use VDF display calculators, I love it.  At work, for example, I use a Commodore GL-979D  :D

Ah! That is a 886D, with LEDs, I have a few at home  :) . It is a very robust machine but goes through the batteries like crazy, probably due to the IC. You would expect the VDF models to be more power hungry but with very early models that is not always the case. Those were very nice, though, with the leds behind little magnifying glasses  :laugh:
