It consists of a plastic housing containing a alpha-numeric keyboard and a liquid crystal display screen, and is capable of 41 functions, including trivia challenges, word processing, word games and mathematics games. Special features also include voice and sound effects, and the ability to connect to a printer.

The applicable subheading for the Power Master PC will be 8543.89.9695, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for other electrical machines and apparatus, ..., not specified or included elsewhere in Chapter 85 HTS. The rate of duty will be 2.9 percent ad valorem.
