depends on your uses. i prefer 83 since i'm mostly stats.Originally posted by: brunswickite
i would try for a ti-89
its alot better, if you are in engineering or take higher then calc 1 math classes

Hehe, I'm still in highschool. Next year I take Algebra 2. If the TI-89 does every thing the 83 does, then it is fine. I am just looking for a place with a good price.Originally posted by: brunswickite

THe Ti-89 does pretty much everything that the 83 does, and for the things it doesn't (obscure things you prolly won't care about) there are easy workarounds. Plus the Ti-89 has man, many, many more functions that it can do than the 83.Originally posted by: amdfanboy

I just need it for calculations with graphs.(i.e. finding intersection points and zero)Originally posted by: Marauder911

The geek gadget lust here is too high, put your shades on or something. If that's all you need (what you wrote above), some flavor of TI-83 will suit you just fine. I got mine on fleaBay (need it to teach a class!). The extra features of the TI-89 seem like serious overkill for Algebra 2. If you ever get around to calculus, then, maybe, the TI-89 would really shine. FYI, I believe there's a replacement for the 83 line coming out, called the 84 (not surprising). Check out TI's site to read-up.Originally posted by: amdfanboy

ti83 will be fine.

Dunno if you know anyone around a college campus, but people are selling these things off cheap all the time. I had one that I sold a couple months ago, to a friend on campus.Originally posted by: amdfanboy

In that case don't waste your time here: ask a calculus teacher at your school which calculator(s) they use / allow in the class. That should solve your problem faster than we can. Well, other than suggesting where / how to buy. I still recommend eBay. There are tons of decent dealers selling new, sealed TI's below retail (figuring in shipping, too).Originally posted by: amdfanboy
I plan on pre-cal in 11th and calc as a senior.
