TI believed that personal computers were the better bet, and they wanted in with that market along with Apple, Atari, Commodore, etc. In a way, it seems like they were right, but HP kept their high-end-calculator niche for a long time regardless, and TI ended up back to doing more with calculators than personal computers by the '90s anyway.

That is very interesting. I would not have thought of the TI-99/4 computer being a possible competitor to the HP-41C. TI made a lot of mistakes in marketing and developing software for the TI-99/4 but their biggest mistake was done years earlier when they made an enemy out of Jack Tramiel.
