It's still that expensive even in USA on Amazon?? O.O

I thought you could get it used for like $80-120 there or Ebay ???, but again maybe the CAS is really more expensive than I thought. I just remember people getting TI-89s for $100 or less and they were the same price as the TI-Nspire CAS or close.

That said it's much better than here, though. In Canada it costs $195 for a TI-Nspire non-CAS.
In case you are wondering where I went, I left Omni back in 2015 to form CodeWalrus due to various reasons explained back then, but I stopped calc dev in 2016 and am now mostly active on the CW Discord server at https://discord.gg/cuZcfcF

I paid $96 for my non-cas, brand new, off ebay about 2 years and I'm lovin it. The nspire is great. In MY opinion it's the best ti-calc ever made 8), if not a little closed to programmers.

Support-wise it's worthless
Hardware-wise it's amazing; we now have as many Mhz to work with as a common 386 PC.

I got a TI-Nspire CX CAS on Amazon for about $150. Plus, it was being sold by Amazon. I love getting good deals.  :)

That's pretty expensive... Mine was around $130, from the school.

If you are thinking about going to higher math classes (Calculus, Linear Algebra) it can be very helpful. To have a calculator with a CAS. The Nspire CX CAS is the calculator I use in AP Calculus AB and it is really helpful. If you are only in Alg 2, it is a little impractical. I used an 84 and an 86 in Alg 2.

I don't like Amazon personally. Even when used, their stuff is too expensive compared to Ebay.
