I need a new calculator for the fall. What would you recommend?
The new Nspire looks nice. If I get the Nspire, should I get the CAS version?
Thanks!
^^I'm leaning towards the 89, since I believe my courses require the calculator, but the nspire looks appealing.
Click and drag the screen, CAS, saving work, etc.
Moo: I'm going to be using the calculator for calculus and calc with linear algebra, also physics and engineering.
What do you use Moo?
I use a TI-89, since 2001... I've entered programs and texts, and the memory is still OK.
But I do not use it very often. I'm in major maths and we use it only for tough and long calculations (in physics ).
If it looks good to you then take it, plus the ti-nspire is more recent than ti-89, so it may be updated... Dunno the difference about these two...

Haha, I'd say "do you really need a calculator ?"Moo: I'm going to be using the calculator for calculus and calc with linear algebra, also physics and engineering.
Especially for linear algebra...
If it's for matrix, a TI-89 is enough. And once again, I can't really compare to TI-nspire. Just tell you that I managed to do this stuff with a TI-89
I think a TI-89 will be more than enough for you. But if you don't mind that much for the price, you could buy a TI-Nspire. For more information about it, just check it out on wikipedia for example.

Personally I use a Ti-82 as calculator. And my computer for powerful calculus.

Hi Guys~
This is my very first post on Math Help, and in my humble opinion, the new TI calculator (nspire) is basically a "confused and messy" model of the 89, offering no real technological advancement~! (i.e; no backlighting, no graphics;etc)
I own the V200 (price:$190) and have spent a majority of time complaining too the TI Support staff about the lack of features witnessed on their "top-of-the-line" models....and they refuse too listen~!
My question to you is: "Why spend more than the cost of a V200..when you get nothing more?" (save a new appy)
The most difficult task facing me now is trying to hire a personal V200 tutor (it is amazing how people complain about "not having enough" money..but run away from someone willing too give it too them!)
Well, so much for my 2cents on the Nspire Vs V200.....
Bye~
