HP Palmtop Serial Number

Have you ever wondered about the meaning of all those numbers and letters in the Serial number burned onto the bottom of your 100/200 LX? I sure have and here is an explanation of the information contained in that serial number. The serial number of the HP Palmtops have the following format:


Where y is the last digit of the year of manufacture, ww is the week of manufacture, and nnnnn is the individual serial number. Thus SG45101234 is the 1234th unit manufactured in the 51st week of 1994. The "SG" is the country of origin (apparently all are manufactured in Singapore).

It seems a similar scheme is used for many HP calculators.
