Technically the HP-9810 and HP-9820 are nearly identical. They are only different in their keyboards, displays and firmware. The embedded 2116 emulates a calculator with AOL (Algebraic Oriented Language). This was a concession to those users who weren't able to become friends with the UPN of the 9810.
