We hate 2020!

Burroughs C 7200 Calculator

The C 7200 is one of the more sophisticated calculators produced by Burroughs. It was introduced around 1971 and is a print-only calculator with programming facilities including loop, branch and subroutines. It had 16 data memory locations, and could store up to 204 program steps. The slot on the right is a magnetic card unit that could read and write programs and data. It does not have scientific notation for numbers, nor any further inbuilt mathematical functions beyond square root.

The calculator could be found in many bank branches in the UK from the mid to late 70s.
