My dream calc would be a TI-84+CSE, but with a processor faster than the CE, more memory, less memory restraints with ASM, and an OS akin to Doors CSE, but with a menu option for calculations. So basically a gaming calculator O.O

Yeah I agree that calcs don't need to be fancy. It's a calculator, after all.


The problem with current graphing calcs is not that they're underpowered. It's that they're way overpriced for their technical specs. Seriously, charging $90 for a 6 MHz 24 KB RAM 160 KB Flash computer-ish device is just ridiculous.


THe only worry I have with a monochrome screen @DarkestEx is that without a backlight it's hard to see the screen and we can't use it when it's dark. Hence my backlit screen suggestion. The backlight could be turned ON/OFF in options or with a button.

Did you just describe a very fancy gameboy with a calculation function?
ceci n'est pas une signature

Sure backlight would be no problem.
