The Pricing for Standard Calculators The invention of the calculator changed the life of the people in the second half of the twentieth century. Invented in the 1960’s, it has been improved its usability and mass produced in the 1970’s at expensive process until it became an ordinary gadget in the 80’s, costing only a few dollars per unit. Today, the regular calculator is more common as a gift item especially the thin card type used by salesmen or business executives. The pricing of standard calculators is rather difficult to peg since the definition of a standard calculator will vary according to many perspectives. The main classification of the standard calculators will be the function for which they are intended. In the beginning of the history of calculators, there were only two classifications, the regular calculator, capable of computing simple arithmetic calculations and the scientific which can compute logarithms, sine, cosine and other algebraic functions. Scientific calculators were a big help to students, especially the engineering students. The prices of calculators have gone down because there so many companies capable of mass producing them and the over supply has led to the drastic reduction of prices. Because of this, many companies closed shop as the production of hand held calculators was no longer a profitable business enterprise. Of the original types of calculators, only the small desktop calculators continue to be produced today. For the other handheld calculators, only the cheaper affordable ones are in production and the high quality hand held calculators with established brands remain in the market.
