Zusammenfassung: I liked programming in TI-Basic on my TI-84. It was quick, straightforward, and powerful. Unfortunately, TI crippled the TI-Basic programming capabilities on the Nspire. The program cannot accept input while it is running, which defeats the purpose of most programs. All input must be specified before runtime. The Lua capabilities are nice, but I could not find a way to edit Lua code on the handheld itself; it must be edited on a computer.
Zusammenfassung: At first I hesitated between TI 89 and this calculator. You know it is much cheaper than TI 89. It is really good. You can program on it. The keyboard is much more convient than TI 89.
Zusammenfassung: BUY IT BECAUSE IT WAS A GIFT FOR MY BROTHER STUDYING ENGINEERING, DO NOT USE AS SUCH, BUT BY MY BROTHER IS SUPER FUNCTIONAL, BUT AS IT IS EXPECTED THAT THE USE AND EASY TO CONNECT WITH PC.
Zusammenfassung: I bought this TI model to potentially replace my Ti89. The benefits of this calculator are: larger screen, more detailed pretty print, ability to store and access documents, and price. Though I haven't experimented with the graphing capabilities, I'm sure that they're superior to the 89's. The negatives: as a student, this device may not me permitted for use during exams, and the buttons that you use most are annoyingly small.
Zusammenfassung: If your instructor allows a graphing calculator, this is the one. I say that as someone who is not calculator savvy. My two favorites and the ones that are with me at all times are the Nspire cx, and the Ti 36. To learn it for classes, avoid most of the help books and focus on using YouTube. I found a video for all how to stuff with this calculator. The separate keyboard for letters is such a relief. I am not hitting the shift button all the time to do something.
Very good alternative to more expensive TI Models.

Zusammenfassung: This calculator should definitely be considered when buying a calculator for upper level math classes. I'm a Senior Pure Mathematics undergrad and this calculator has handled every class I've taken so far with ease. The batteries last a long time. It's fairly easy to use although learning the button layout can take a week or two. The graphing capabilities are outstanding but the formula input box could be a little easier to reach.
Zusammenfassung: So, I decided to purchase this calculator because I was in a level of math that required something more functional than a scientific calculator. My teacher actually pulled this calculator up on Amazon during class and told is about what a beneficial investment we'd be making. You really can't beat the price and the fact that it can do so much for you. Plus, I received it in two days thanks to my amazon prime trial.
