Which calculator?

Ok, I'm gonna get a TI because I need one for class, but most of the time I will be playing games on it. I'm not sure of which one to get though. I was looking here. I really don't wanna go over $100, but tell me what is out there. I might as well get the best.

You shouldn't need anything more than a scientific calculator for class...you can get a decent one for $12 at Walgreens. Go buy a nintendo gameboy if you want to play games...

Plus, having a few games to help pass the time wouldn't hurt.

TI-83 or TI-84 Plus are all you need for a high school math class

You can buy a new TI-83+ for $80 at most stores.

I'd suggest just getting one of those. Although for $125 you can get a TI-84 Plus Silver edition which has tons more memory and is faster and will last you all the way through college.

a normal ti-83+ will last long enough. i use my older brother's calculator from when he was a freshman, that was almost 6 years ago. it works perfectly fine besides the things that i etched into the case...

Oh ya there is no doubt that it will last through time, but if he plans on going to college he'll be in higher math and science classes that require a "better" calculator. Granted an ti83+ would work, but better ones make life easier.

casio already has some with limited color capability. if you are wanting to play games you want nothing but an 83 or 84 series. most games won't work on others. find yourself a used silver edition for like 80 bux or so. ti's are built like friggin tanks. i've had by silver edition for 4 eyars now and its just like new. and i've dropped it, setpped on it, etc and it just dusts itself off and keeps on workin. no need to spend the cash on an 84, which btw is just a glorified 83.

Get a TI-83+, and keep it for college. You'll be able to use it for all of your classes (unless they change that standard sometime).

Oh ya, and you'll be able to play games on it as well

A word to advice to those with a TI-83+, pay the $7 online to download and install the periodic table if you plan on ever taking chemistry. It is extremely helpful on chem exams.

TI 83+ is just what people really need. Nothing more nothing less. They are beasts, and work great.

there are a few things that 83+'s cant due that 89's can, im running into that problem in college. you cant do somethings involveing maticies and such.
other than that, thier awesome. and like someone(sorry im too lazy to look up your name) they are built like tanks. I actually dropped mine down a flight of stairs, and then used it for a math test the next period.

Let me suggest AGAINST 89s. They are EXTREMELY complex and WAY too advanced for a student. I personally use a TI-86 because i like the layout of all the menus and the features it has (the ONLY thing that the 83 has up on it is imaginary numbers). Also, i'm only in Pre-Calculus. I have been told that i will need an 83 later because Calculus REQUIRES and 83.

Get an 83, if you got the extra cash then an 84. done. don't really need the silver editions..

the 84's have the periodic table on them, the new 83's might as well. if they dont just use one of the connectors that you can buy, or sometimes comes with the calc and take it off of somebody elses calculator. my chemistry teacher was going to give it to me and anybody else that needed it but most people already had it on them.
