Clipboard With Built In Calculator


I've spent about 2 hours now looking for a plastic clipboard with a calculator on the clip. No problem to find one, but I need one with storage also.

I can't find one! I did a web search, checked ebay, amazon, office depot, office max... And more. Like I said I spend two hours. I know they exist because I have seen them.

Does anyone know where I can get a plastic clipboard with a calculator and forms storage?

I use the metal type with form storage. It would be easy to rip off the clip, and epoxy your board with the calc. on the top to make what you need. Might look tacky, but would be functional.

Thanks Pro and Joe. I'd prefer metal over plastic because the metal has the potential to damage a person's dining room table. The palstic is less likley. Thanks for your help. I gotta keep looking!

Try this one. It doesn't have a calculator but you can always get a small one anywhere. This one is Plastic. when you get to the website type in "Plastic Clipboards" in the PRODUCT SEARCH box.

Scroll down too.

1) Saunders Storage Clipboard

2) Eldon Storage Clipboard

Grumpy... id look for the plastic clipbook that you find "perfect" for rouy needs , then use velcro for the calculator. Just a thought. I did just that since i ran into the same problem.

Re: Clipboard With Built In Calculator


Alek, I did find the clip board I needed at Staples already. The calculator is built in and it looks very professional. Already two people commented on how "neat" it is.

The reason Id idn't want aluminum is because it has a greater potential to scratch customer's furniture and it's cold to hold in the winter.
