TI-73 overhead overstock at the Stokes Publishing Company
« on: December 14, 2013, 08:01:44 pm »
Although still costing around $300 in shops, the Stokes Publishing  Company seems to be on the verge of discontinuing the only transparent graphing calculator in the world, the TI-73 Explorer overhead calculator they developped in partnership with TI.



Manufacturer units are currently being sold at the very low price of $25.

Even if you're not interested in the calculator, it's a real bargain when you know that the pack does include many accessories, among them the TI-Graph Link USB cable which alone costs higher than this !


The calculator can of course be reflashed exactly like a normal TI-73 Explorer calculator and is using the same OS and Boot Code.

Seriously, $25??? :O

I am almost tempted to get one even if I don't have a projector or anything. I am really curious if Chameleon would run on this...


I'm betting that they won't ship to Canada, right? <_<

Chameleon will run on it, as it's the same hardware and software as the TI-73 Explorer.

So yes, you can turn it into the non existent "The Educator TI-83 Plus overhead calculator".


Here's the webform order:

If it's not clear for Canada, you can still try to call them:

Of course, it's the price if you buy directly from the manufacturer. Not from your local dealer (there are several ones for Canada).

Wow, that's pretty interesting. I'm surprised they're selling them so cheaply. :o

Oh snap, I would so want one of those packs. But I guess shipping to here would be expensive as hell, and they don't accept paypal, so getting the money across the ocean would be a huge hassle as well. :(

Damn, I want a transparent TI-83 Plus...

And the price is really insane. I got my Silverlink alone for hardly less than that when shipping/taxes are included :/

Yeah but on the company's website, the transparent 73 is only $25. Shipping will most likely cost you more than the actual item and it's actually cheaper than a link cable I think. :P

Just got mine in the mail a couple of days ago:

http://blog.ryanb.cc/post/72100891988/it-almost-feels-like-a-secret-weapon-sadly-it

Thanks again for sharing! It only cost $35 total ($10 of that was shipping), so it was quite a bargain.

Just ordered mine, but haven't received a confirmation email yet. Did they send those for you?

Are the keys on glass? If so I'd imagine you could scrape the paint off carefully and replace it with a new layer, but I haven't seen this personally so I have no idea if that's the case.
