Editorial Review
The BA-20 Profit Manager desktop is a calculator that looks like it was designed to perform some basic business functions and look good sitting on a desk. It has a sleek case with an aluminum top and a relatively large 10-digit display that is tilted to provide better visibility and less glare.

We tried to reseat it but one side always jutted from the case slightly more than the other side. It's a minor point, but definitely something to check for if you...
