The Casio FX-7000G is one of several programmable calculators which were introduced in the early 80’s.
It is equipped with solid state memory and lots of mathematical as well as statistical functions. The memory however, is volatile. Batteries are supposed to last 100 hours and after each replacement all memory contents will be lost. So, 422 program steps doesn’t seem much, but programs have to be re-entered after each replacement.
The LCD display is capable of displaying 8 lines of 16 characters or a 64 X 96 pixel graph.
Several publications in 1986 state that it is the world's first graphing calculator available to the public.
