Sure, it's faster and has more memory than a standard 83+, but it's still an 83. For just $20 more than the 83+ Silver, you can get an 89. 89s can do, among other things, symbolic simplification of equations, 3D graphing, (one of the things I wish for daily on the 83+) a BASIC where you can write your own functions and pass arguments to those functions. On top of that, the 89 has a much higher-resolution screen good for both graphing and nice-looking games.

Besides, you can hack the LCD display in the TI-89 (through assembly) to show colors! Woo!

(Not back for long.)

It realy hurts the display (as i found out,oops). The 89 is a lot better tho. Of course, the new 92+ looks great :P

How much different is the setup and placement of buttons in the 83 to 89?

I love the 83... did a lot of development on my 82 (so that I could give my programs to people with 83's and 82's) but I need a new 83.. this rocks thanks!

Has anybody seen/bought one of the blue TI-83s? Unfortunately, they don't have the same features as the Silver Edition one but it looks just as cool (if better).

Yeah, the 89's are good, *but*, only if you're taking a math class that doesn't need statistics features. I have an 89 i've used in Alg. 2 Precal, and Physics, but for Stat i rent a 83 from the school

There is a flash app that does stat for the 89, but i am too cheap to buy a graphlink to look at it.
