Calculators

OK.
I have the Ti-84 Plus.
And (as you may know), you can play games (some 3D, usch as Wolfenstein), draw graphs, program stuff and cheat with it.
Trying to get some money to buy a Ti-nSpire.
Ah...
Might be doing some mods.
What calculator(s) do you have? Mods?

I have an HP49g+. I love the tactile feel when I press the buttons.

I can't seem to find many games/apps for it. Anyone want to help?

I have the TI-83+, I remember messing around with an 89, which had GREYSCALE!!11

lol.

The 89 has many more games than the Nspire.

I used to get tons of **** from ti-calc.org. Good times...

HP 12C, baby! RPN rocks!

I always kept one handy (I have two) in a briefcase or backpack. I keep one on my desk at home, but have the 12C emulator on my iPhone. It's not quite the same - I love those chunky buttons. But it works and I love having a 12C in my pocket.

I've got a small collection of other financial calculators and a few scientific ones. But the 12C is my favorite.

I don't have any URLs on hand, but there are calculator collectors and enthusiasts out there.

If you want a funky, unusual calculator, go on eBay and hunt down some of the old Soviet Elektronika models. I think they're cool.

HP-15C, HP-12C. HP-35S. I used to have a HP-28C and a HP-48SX that I gave away to struggling engineering students in India.

HP RPN calcs are the gold standard. When I was in high school, I was one of only two HP owners. By the time I got into engineering school, HP were the majority. Unfortunately Carly Fiorina gutted HP's calculator department in the late nineties. They have been trying to recover since.

That said, for complex analytical tasks the higher-end calculators are designed for, Matlab or Mathematica running on a PC or Mac is far easier to use, faster and makes more sense. That's why I gave away the 48SX and kept the 15C.

I have a TI-83 (I think) and BA financial calc. I honestly have never considered putting games on it. Got it from my cousin, so I don't even have the cable(s).

WHERE DID YOU GET WOlFENSTEIN!!!!! I also have the Ti84 plus SE. I have a friend that has the nSpire, and really, it's not worth it, unless you're really willing to learn all the shortcuts.

Wolfenstein83 - ticalc.org

Wolfenstein. Needs MirageOS, of course.

Oh man, this reminds me of 7th grade, messing around on these things.

Finally, someone who knows Electronika!

Older Soviet stuff

HUGE solar panel! Nowadays solar panels on calcs are all smallish. Guess the efficiency augmented.
Remember the Elektronica 60? Tetris, anyone?

Damn, school's over just in time for me to learn about this.

TI-89 Titanium, does everything I probably need to do with great speed and nice precision, good size, long battery life etc.

For anything else I use my Macbook Pro with Sage or Grapher. Sage is a mathematica like powerful math program that can do all sorts of stuff such as precision up to 2^24 digits, which i verified the accuracy of compared to a nasa site using a 100char string and comparing it to nasas over 2million digits. And the 2 millionth digit of e is 9 for those of you that care. The 2 millionth digit of π (pi) is 3

What do you mean, 'digits' and 'calculations?' Everyone knows that graphing calculators are only for playing games.
