A new model? Just a google search and found this:

Quote
Graphing Calculator NY Schools - Special School Model. Allows students to input in a natural textbook display fashion but the fx-9860GII S outputs or displays results only in format allowed by schools. 4-AAA batteries included.

Seems to have restrictions in output.

Interesting, so I guess it's kinda like with the FX-cg10, which had image support modified to meet US tests standards.

Well, I ended up buying the 9750GII
the 40 usd difference is quite big for the few extra feutures of the 9860. Besides, I have to pay an extra 20% because our President doesn't want dolars to go outside the country.
TIs or HPs calculators are out of my reach :( and used electric goods can't enter the country via mail.
As far as I read, it is possible to upgrade the 9750 to have the same features of the 9860. So, why spend more? maybe it is faster but I can wait 2-5 seconds more.

I bought on Friday and I just received the tracking number. Fingers crossed  ;)
Thanks a lot for the help, guys!

By the way, does your 9750GII says USB Power Graphics 2 on the front cover? If not, then it is most likely possible to upgrade it to a FX-9860GII, although I don't think the author of the required tools allows redistributing all the needed files anymore (maybe due to legal reasons). I am unsure how risky it is, either, if you mess up during the process. For now you should be able to do quite a lot with the model that you just got, though, including writing programs. I think the 9750GII has identical speed as the 9860G, It just has fewer RAM (half of it) and no Flash storage space (meaning no add-ins, but you still got some space for programs).

Anyway I hope you get it soon! :)

Congratulations on your purchase. I hope it is very useful to you in your studies. It's a shame calculators are so expensive for you there. :/

On a side note, does anyone know if the FX-9750G+ and CFX models (I think in France they are the non-USB Graph 25-65 models) have a DrawStat command?

Congratulations!
I have to say that the 9750GII is FAR more powerful than TI-83/84, from hardware (faster CPU and larger memory) to software (once you upgrade it to 9860, you will see the familiar natural display on your 570ES. Also, CASIO does a better job in integration. Far more precision than TI)
Even if you own a Power Graphic 2 model, still you can upgrade it. But all the related information is in Chinese. Maybe you can contact chsi at cncalc.org for translation. ;)

20MHz, not overclocked... :D You'll get the grasp of intrusing a castle in Wolfenstein 3D, you'll have the head reversed with Gravity DUck ,and so on!

Well, DHL called me about the calculator and there are some Customs clearance problems and I should travel 500 km to solve it. So, Amazon is taking responsabily and reshipping the calculator as soon as they have it in stock again ... 1 month XD
One reason why my country sucks to get imported goods :(

Clearance custom issues sucks. I had it happen with my 84+CSE in March because I used a private carrier (UPS) so there were hidden charges on delivery.

@alc112: Sorry to hear about your shipping issues. That is a pain to be sure. :( At least Amazon is taking care of it for you though. :)

What I don't understand is that I thought that Argentina was a free country, yet they banned TI calcs and international used electronic goods and added restrictions on other international electronics. This sounds a bit like North Korea and China with their censorship and bans on various items. >.< I guess I was misinformed about the state of the country.

That said, Canada isn't any better when it comes to online music streaming services... (only Rdio is available).

I didn't want to enter in offtopic but somehow you are right.
All the goods that doesn't enter via mail or people traspassing the borders  (these two ways pay 50% of the declared value if Customs decide to hold the package) NEEDS the personal  authorization of the Secretary of Domestic Trade. So, goods (even medicines that are not produced in the country) are held in the docks for months. And you have to be careful of what you say because all those business that needs to import goods depends on this person.
Dolars (money) are scarce and for that reason you have to pay 20% if you pay in dolars with your credit/debit cards. People that wants to visit another country need to start some paperwork to see if they can get some dollars legally and If the the government decides to give some, is ver very little money or none (and the tell you this a week before your flight). Legal dolar is arround AR$5.8 and the ilegal (we call it blue) is nearly AR$10.
