I guess I'll wait for the new TI-84+CSE.  Looks really cool.  Imagine the things that you could do with it.

I think 'Platinum Edition' or 'Plutonium Edition' would sound better. I'm just deeply saddened by the lack of RAM; hopefully programs can run from archive, like the 68k calcs could.

When you drop a calc, they tend to bounce...

Personally ill probably make APPS only and use RAM(probably all of it) for buffers and such.

1993: 28.7 KB (TI-82)
2013: 21.7 KB (TI-84PCSE)
2033: 14.7 KB (next gen 84+ model )
2053: 7.7 KB (even more next gen 84+ model)
2073: 0.7 KB

O.O

On a better note, though, the awesome part about smaller user RAM is that it will be even more entertaining to push the calc limits. :D

My guess: plotSScreen has been expanded to 5610 bytes (so it can store the 265x165 graph screen, albeit in monochrome), while saveSScreen and appBackUpScreen have been removed. This would change the available user memory after a RAM clear from 24317 bytes to 21011.

What is the 265x165 thing you mention? Do you mean graphing will no longer take most of the screen, even in full mode?

Yeah if you look at the screenshot with a graph on it, you can see that it doesnt occupy the entire 320x240 LCD. It was measured to be around 265x165.

Also Goplat there are 3 different graphs on that screen(TI website), each with a different colour? Perhaps the graphs are redrawn direct to LCD in colour (updated directly when manipulating), but stored as monochrome if you were to save them?

I used my TI-89 Titanium to get these results:
2016: 20KB
2031: 15 KB
2033: 14.25 KB
2046: 10 KB
2053: 7.75 KB
2061: 5KB
2069: 2.58 KB (~ TI-81's)
2073: 1.28 KB

Hopefully, TI will eventually stop using z80s and use something else.

Edit: It seems that every calc model in existence is crippled in some way.
TI-83+ series in RAM.
TI-Nspire series in programming.
TI-68k series in popularity.
Casio models in approval from most instructors, and speed of built-in language.

Due to dissatisfaction, I will be inactive on Omnimaga until further notice. (?? THP hasn't been much success and there's also the CE. I might possibly be here for a while.)
If you want to implore me to come back, or otherwise contact me, I can be found on GitHub (bluebear94), Twitter (@melranosF_), Reddit (/u/Fluffy8x), or e-mail (if you know my address). As a last resort, send me a PM on Cemetech (bluebear94) or join Touhou Prono (don't be fooled by the name). I've also enabled notifications for PMs on Omnimaga, but I don't advise using that since I might be banned.

It has less RAM than a Commodore 64.
