HP-17B is an algebraic entry financial and business calculator manufactured by Hewlett-Packard, introduced on January 4, 1988 along with the HP-19B, HP-27S and the HP-28S. It was a simplified business model, like the 19B. There were two versions, the US one working in English only, and the international one with a choice of six languages (English, German, Spanish, French, Italian, and Portuguese).

HP-17B code name was Trader and it belonged to the Pioneer series of H-P calculators.[2] It had a 132x16 LCD dot matrix, 22x2 characters, menu-driven display[3] , used a Saturn processor and had a memory of 8000 bytes, of which 6750 bytes were available to the user for variable and equation storage. HP-17 had a clock with alarm that allowed for basic agenda capabilities, as well an infrared port for printing to some H-P infrared printers.

HP-17B was replaced by HP-17BII (code name Trader II) in January 1990 which added RPN entry, and HP-17BII was replaced by HP-17BII+ in 2003.
