Ugh, can't they come up with better model names for their calculators? Next thing you know they'll make different models called "TI-84 Plus EC" and "TI-84 Plus CES" and "TI-84 Plus SEC", etc., and no one will get them straight. If this model requires me to add yet another platform section to ticalc.org's file archives, there will be no hope of anyone uploading files to the correct calc directory ever again…Yeah, I thought of that. I wonder if they think consumers won't realize that a "TI-87" or "TI-8400" or something is a successor to the TI-84 Plus line. I maintain that there should have been a Platinum Edition or Gold Edition or something of that ilk. I remember even GIMPing up a Gold Edition of my own back in the day from a TI-83 Plus Silver Edition photograph. I wish us both the best of luck keeping our Archives organized.
With that rant out of the way, this does sound pretty interesting, and I'm curious myself as to how the hardware and CPU are set up and what this means for graphics performance.I'm almost hoping that DrDnar's surmise is correct; it seems like the best option for us, and probably still the cheapest for TI in the long run.
