Yes. So the memory is not an issue, you have too much of it. And the functionality of the 89 can be duplicated on the 83+SE. Come to think of it, the 83+SE can do stuff the 89 can't. Like special fonts, a faster 3D graphing utility, and most important of all, it has less modifier keys.

89 has better resolution. (I'm a die-hard 89 user, by the way.) Yeah, I know that there are things the 83 series can do that the 89 can't, and vice versa. But I like what the 89 can do better.

Though it does have a higher resolution, you can't use about half the screen in basic.

It is. Anyone know how to program in C for the Ti-89?

Good question. I was about to ask that. But maybe programming in assembly would be faster?

Not sure of that. Let's ask someone. Which is faster, C, or ASM?

ASM is faster. C is a high level language, and as such it is converted into ASM as it's being executed. ASM is already ASM, so no conversion is neccessary.

If C is translated into asm run-time, what's the point of compiling it?

If you compile it, it will be translated once so no further translation is necessary, and the program isn't slowed down when you run it by translating every command.

So let me get this straight. ASM is faster. Right?
So then which is less complicated C, or ASM?

C is a high level languages and as such is easier by it's very nature. The whole point of a high level language is to make things simpler for the programmer.
