The backlight sucks too much power out of the batteries and school is in the morning where you won't have to use the backlight.
Nah, a back light drains too much

perhaps there could be a thing to switch the back light on and off?
There is a hardware switch, which is why I like the idea. Smile

It's in the Casios, so why not ours?

1) Battery drain
2) Cost of backlit screen vs. same model without backlit
3) Limits number of available choices of LCD
4) Requires extra I/O line(s) for control
5) Might require extra cost and complexity in form of hardware switch for on/off

I agree that we should aim for something larger than 96x64, though. Probably not square though; square sounds a bit awkward.

Sorry for the bump, I didn't see your post when I posted my post above this. I did address the possible hardware switch in my post though, and how that could be a detriment. Smile
