@Hayleia I know you didn't like when people omitted the plus from the TI-84 Plus calculator names, but guess what? TI has now done it too: I got an e-mail inviting me to join the "Successfully Integrating TI-84 Technology into Your Middle Grades Mathematics Classroom" webinar. :trollface:

Or could this be a sign of things to come, such as TI releasing a lower-end TI-84 Plus? :P (eg renaming the TI-83 Plus or TI-73 as TI-84 without a plus)


The school supply list writers have gotten to TI! O.O

Or that could be the TI-84 Retarded (the french TI-82 Advanced) :p

You know, I wouldn't be surprised if they re-released the TI-82 Advanced as a TI-84 non-plus here in the future. The worst part is that they would probably charge the same price as the regular 84+. It would probably be hacked fast, though, since the calculator would be more popular than as a France exclusive.


It's probably just a shorthand to refer to every model of TI-84 Something.

Except that outside France, there never was a non-plus TI-84 model ever released. Even the pocket SE released in Asia had Plus in the name, unlike the TI-84 Pocket.Fr. And that webinar happens to come from the American division of Texas Instruments.


It's like the Nspire -- when referring to the series (TI-84 technology), only the base model name is used. TI still calls it Nspire technology when referring to the Nspire CX and CX-CAS. The wording choice is more marketing than a sign of future calculator releases.
