hp 12C date of manufacture


My 12C which I bought new has a serial # 2324a00305. Does this mean it was manufactured in 1983? If not, what can you tell me about it?




Yes, 2324 means that it was manufactured in the 24th week of 1983 (although it could be fiscal year 1983, not calendar year 1983. I believe their fiscal year begins Nov 1st).

The "A" represents country of manufacture (America).

Hope that helps!


thanks, I appreciate your response.
