Calculators are numerous in design, functionality and uses. From small inexpensive every day hand held calculators for under £2 to heavy duty printing calculators costing over £100. What you need to spend depends on what you need to use the calculator for and where you need to use it.
Handheld Calculators - Small enough to fit in your pocket or briefcase but not necessarily lacking in functionality as some can be packed with functionality for tax experts and accountants. Some are credit card sized to fit inside your personal organiser, wallet or pocket.
Desktop Calculators - These are designed for use on your desktop. Larger than pocket calculators, they have larger displays for easy reading and the display screen is usually tilted at an angle, again to improve readability.
Scientific Calculators - These are for advanced calculations and statistics and come packed with functionality including Roots & powers function, Complex numbers function, Pie chart capability, Bar chart capability, Graphing capability, equations, logarithms, polynomial and simultaneous equations. These calculators are a must for all maths and science students.
Printing Calculators - These are primarily aimed at accountants, auditors and book keepers as they print out each calculation on a paper roll which can be reviewed at a later date or examined to audit and verify each stage of the calculations.
Most pocket calculators and many desktop calculators are solar powered or dual powered being solar powered but with a battery backup. At Office Allsorts we carry a large range of calculators from leading manufacturers such as Casio, Ibico, Sharp, Aurora, Canon and our budget brand 5 Star.
