    I know this is definately the most nerdy thread on the forum but...
    I was wondering what i should get for a graphing calculator...
    I lost or broke 4 of them (TI-84 silver, Ti-83 Plus, HP 39G, HP 39G) in the last year...
    I was thinking of the TI-89 platinum edition... What do you think?

    I never liked the reverse polish notation, but for some people...
    I have a ti-86 that is pretty old now, but still works. The ti-92 is just to big

    Is the TI-92 really old or really good?

    I haven't been keeping up with graphing calculators since I left high school, but the TI-89 was pretty much the best one available when I was there. One big advantage it had over the TI-83+ is that it could do symbolic integration and derivatives. The 83+ (and the 86 too, I believe) could only do numerical.
