Zusammenfassung: I'll say at the outset that my 5-star rating is for functionality, and secondarily for its color display and sleekness. I give it 3 stars for its keyboard construction. At this price, I expect a solid, positive key press.
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.
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.
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.
