Unfortunately the Texet's hardware isn't nearly as nice - both in quality and styling. But it's a cheerful machine for daily use.

It is actually the fx-6300G (same programming model as the 4000P but not as good integration of features) in one of many the near disguises that OEMs put it in thinking nobody cares to get much the wiser. But anyone can do the research (or piggyback on someone else who has) easily thanks to the pervasiveness of the internet—a far (but not really so far) cry from the first years of graphing calculators and before when to do such research meant finding the money or the second person to buy a machine that would turn out to be functionally identical to the OEM model. At least back then OEMs would spell out exactly what they were doing. Now, though, they stoop to trying to dress their machines up as somehow unique when it’s so easy to discover that these machines are something else in disguise as if they were somehow suddenly ashamed of being uncreative. They are no more genuinely ashamed of this than they were in these early years, nor might they ever be, or else they would be releasing designs which were genuinely their own.
