Schools in United States and France generally recommend the TI-Nspire series as higher-end calculators, but I heard that the HP Prime was allowed in some tests. If you plan to use the calculator for exams, it's best to ask your school if the HP Prime is allowed.
One more thing : the Nspire has an actual computer software with a simulator allowing you to work with the environment in a less restricted way (I mean, the speed is your computer's, basically.) (Also, there is an actual Nspire emulator, but not a Prime one so far)

If you plan to use the calculator for exams, it's best to ask your school if the HP Prime is allowed.When I last looked, the Prime was approved for tests like PSAT's and SAT's because there is an OS option in the Prime's options to disable ANY part of the calc for either a period of time, a password input, or both. My teachers don't even bother anyway though...
Okay so is HP planning on adding 3D graphing in the future? Right now I am only doing simple things like trig but my teacher said to invest in a nice calculator now (he recommended the cx cas) as it will most likely last me through college. Which one is the most "future proof"?
Ok so is there anything that the nspire cx cas has that the prime doesn't?
