A Superstar Product: The HP 65 Calculator
The HP 65 programmable pocket calculator was codenamed “Superstar.” At an opening price of $795, a fraction of the cost of a programmable desktop calculator, the HP 65 made computer programming more approachable, as consumers no longer needed access to millions of dollars in equipment. And like the HP 35, an HP 65 wound up in the Smithsonian’s collections due to its superstar status in the history of technology.
