Whatever you do, don't buy a TI-Nspire. Better, buy a Casio.
Why not? Nspire Cx has better specs than Casio Prizm. Also I think that Casio products are not of very good quality. I have an old rudimentary Casio graphing calculator that I have troubles with the display (unstable contrast).
No. The Nspire has a crappy version of TI-Basic, no assembly/C support (at least not without hacking), and a two-way incompatible implementation of Lua (no standard print function). The Prizm is more open to third-party programming.
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.

Actually, I think that Casio's newest hardware is just as good as TI's. It obviously doesn't have as much memory, etc, but still, it is very quality stuff. And Casio isn't trying to destroy their programming community, like TI is with the Nspire.

It just depends on your opinion.

With Casio calcs, you get a pretty good piece of hardware (at a great price) and a company that cares about programmability etc. They go to the point of joining forums like this one and someone answers questions and gets feedback. And actually does something with that feedback, leading to stuff like OS bugs being fixed.
With TI calcs, the hardware is hit-and-miss (the CX seems to have some pretty good stuff, but the still-mainstream 83 series is running on the decades-old Z80) and they don't really give a snap about anyone who isn't a teacher. And there's the high prices.  Afaict the only reason TI's still floating is because of the monopoly they seems to have on schools, which I guess can be a benefit in classes with teachers that don't know how to teach without being dependent on them.

Personally I have both a CX and a Prizm, and I'm kind of disappointed with how the CX does math (it does stuff like turning division problems into fractions and spitting the same thing back out at you) and symbol input. Also the mouse is kind of wonky, popping up randomly and clicking when you don't want it to.
[/opinion]

As an afterthought aren't there topics about this, even a tutorial somewhere? :P

You could just deactivate symbolic math, then it wouldn't give back what you enter.

I mean just doing normal math. :P  This is a non-cas.
If it's on the normal ones then TI's done a pretty good job of hiding it and not documenting it at all b/c after looking through menus and settings for days I've found nothing that appears to change it.
(why didn't they put in something as simple as a F↔D key...)


OT edit: what's with this thread breaking my sig... 0.o

Just a heads up - you guys aren't talking about the actual topic, UberGraphX. ;) (Unless UberGraphX got sponsored by TI or Casio!)
It's great to discuss about Casio and TI, but here it's offtopic. If you want to, discuss it on IRC or in the proper topic. Thanks! :D
(Maybe a mod can split the topic and merge with the discussion one? I'm not familiar with controls yet.)

DJ_O: Yeah, I'm terrible at time management IRL, even at school. :P One life skill that I must learn....

Instead of UberGraphX I can buy a netbook.  :-\ Most netbooks/UMPCs are pretty nice, but too expensive. Maybe the next TI calc. will be more programmer-friendly.
