    'Relatively cheap' and £92 should not been the same sentence when talking about a calculator.

    TI Nspire has a slower processor than the CG50. Although many do say the Nspire's GUI is more readable than CG50's, I don't have any problems with the casio's GUI.

    Btw I used the CG50 for a month and it is fine.

    However you need to ask your teacher what calculator you should get as she may do demonstrations with her calculator.

    Where did you find that the CG50 has a faster processor than the Nspire?
