Pink was a surprise, but then again, maybe not. An eBay/Etsy search shows that this device was available in Sea Mist Green, Amber Gray, Alpine Blue, or Capri Coral (pink to me). Yes, long before the iMac.
Hmm… It looks like division wasn’t quite invented yet. Well, it is an adding machine after all.
For the curious:
Today seems like a good day to read a brief history of the numeric keypad!
Can’t leave out the modern age!

Keyed to people who count
If any adding-subtracting machine ever looked, and performed, like a thoroughbred—well, we wager everyone who counts will agree—it’s this Burroughs Ten Key.
Note the fresh beauty of design. Added speed and cusioned quiet operating east, too, are inherent in the new “BalanceTouch” keyboard. Other new extras: minus amounts and credit balances printed in red, and totals that automatically pop right up where you can see them. And, of course, you get Burroughs dependable, quality-engineered performance year after year after year. So much so that this Ten Key literally pays for itself over and over and over again.
Free trial? Just phone our nearest brand or dealer. Convincing and then some!
