    I only have an inferior TI-83+. =( I really want that new TI-Nspire though. Mang, it looks sexy.
    At the risk of sounding like a complete geek(!), that does look cool! :cool:

    Surely that wouldn't be allowed in exams though?

    Yeah one of the invidulators who was checking my ID and stuff during the exam suddenly stopped and picked up my calculator (whilst I had a graph which I was using displayed on the screen) and started examining it and rigorously checking it against her clipboard, which I didn't see her do for anyone else! I did think she was going to take it off me for a moment, which had me pretty worried cos it was quite helpful for one question!

    Probably not. xD But I wouldn't want to use it in exams anyway. I just wanna have it because it's cool. :p:

    Those invigilators are breaking the rules. TI-83 is allowed since it can't do symbolic differentiation/integration. I've had one in an exam before and they didn't do anything.

    I don't think they can take it off you during an exam (unless its gcse) since it doesent give you answers, you can check answers using it (much like how you can check using a casio 991es to some extent) by substituting X numbers here and there, so you're really unlucky they took it off you

    You can't take a TI-Nspire into an A-level exam! It has a CAS... which is a massive no-no :p:

    I'm not sure if you were being serious or not, but it is hard to think of a bigger waste of £176!

    Err, well it's not easy to evaluate the 'worth' of a lottery ticket. :wink2: (But we digress...)

    The TI-89 Titanium is great! It does far too much to be allowed in exams though, but very useful for homework.

    Casio CFX-9850G PLUS ftw :P

    though I do admit I would gladly have the TI-Nspire. My friend has a TI (93 I think) and the interface is nasty - my casio has a proper GUI and such. It is great being able to check integrals and such, though I always do feel a bit guilty when doing so.

    I was about to get one of these at a snip on ebay but found my trusty old casio 9750. Doesn't do symbolic integration though.
