This is an updated picture showing my color (backlighted) calculator collection. It also showcases how terrible the PS Vita camera is <_<



Notice, however, how the HP Prime has the 2nd largest screen physically, despite being the smallest of the five calcs when its cover is removed. The only thing I dislike about the Prime screen is that unlike the four other models, the protection is made of glass rather than plastic, so it can probably break much easier if dropped on the floor or if you drop something on the calc like the corner of an heavy book.

On the other hand, the PRIZM gotta have by far the most scratches-prone screen. It's the only one of my five color calcs that got scratches after only a few months of use, even with nothing put over it. I bet that just dust did it.

Here's mine. :D My Nspire CX is missing (mom, give it back already !) But from left to right in the order I got them :
-TI-80. I learned programming on this one. I also changed the batteries only twice in 8 years. It still works great.
-HP 40g. This is one epic calc. It has a CAS by B. Parisse and is on par with the 83+ hardware wise but has a much more powerful and faster BASIC language. It is currently non functional due to me messing up something but I still have hope for it.
-TI-84+. My trusty 128k 84+ is still awesome. This is the calc that got me back in TI BASIC and on which I learnt ASM and Axe. I still use it as my secondary calc.
-TI-83+SE. I found it. My first SE calc. Unfortunately it is the revision 0 with battery issues and I broke the LCD module. I can still salvage an 83+ to fix it but I'm waiting for Geekboy's upgrade PCB to make an epic calc.
-TI-82 stats fr. Functionally an 83 parcus, I don't use it at all.
-TI-83+SE VSC. My new main calc. It's a full fledged 83+SE but with the viewscreen hardware which I'm looking forward to hacking. It also looks awesome (better colors than an 83+BE IMO and the SE front bezel).

Edit : Let's include the actual pic.

Never heard of the CP 400 ?
I own: 83+ ; 84+SE ; 76.fr ; CX CAS ; Prizm ; 84+CSE
Sorry if I answer with something that seems unrelated, English is not my primary language and I might not have understood well. Sorry if I make English mistakes too.

Nope, I didn't. :P The VSC calc came with a clear slide case, as weird as it sounds. But this is one of the SE symbols anyway so I guess it's normal.

the Classpad 400 is incredibly slow and overpriced, which might explain why it's rarely discussed anywhere. Granted, drawing lines/shapes is faster than on the PRIZM, but maths are even slower... and some people or charts say that this calc has a 200 MHz CPU?

That's stll a good amount :)

Regarding the fake solar panel, I have had two calculators with fake ones too....

It was surely very nice amount.. I could have added some more fake items in the deal.
