What customers say about "Size & Weight"
Texas Instruments TI-Nspire CX Graphing Calculator
  • This is absolutely what i needed and for the price it is affordable. the right size and easy to use.
  • I bought it for my middle school child, probably a bit more than what she needs now but plan is for her to get comfortable with keys and functionality ahead of college entry exams.
  • I understand cutting back on weight a little as the original ti-nspire is a brick to hold, but it fits well in your hand and it feels like it will last me a lifetime.
  • Smaller, lighter, compact, but not unmanageable for my nimble fingers
  • Works fine. Used at PSAT. Just wish it was a little more compact in size.
Texas Instruments TI-Nspire CX CAS Graphing Calculator
  • Build wise, it's slickers than the bulky 83 & 84 +, but it feels a bit hollow compared to the Ti-nspire CX, that model has the best build, thing and good amount of weight, soft buttons, CAS is bit more hollow, more clicky, that's not necessarily a bad thing.
  • The calculator is thin for its class, and very light weight, the rechargeable Lithium battery definitely helps
  • Very light weight but not to the point that it feels fragile.
  • On the other hand, the TI-N is about the same size as the TI-89, maybe a cm wider and taller. It is thinner and it weights a bit less.
  • Another thing I noticed is that the device isn't weighted very well - it is top-heavy which makes it feel as if it will slip out of your hand.

What customers say about "Display"
Texas Instruments TI-Nspire CX Graphing Calculator
  • Easy to use calculator with many great features. The display is very clear and easy to view.
  • The best graphing calculator ever. You should buy it. Nice color display, nice feature and I'm not kidding.
  • Bought for my daughter in high school, she was quite impressed with how easy it was to use, and with the color display.
  • The display is readable. The keys are crisp and the system is intuitive. I give it the geezer seal of approval!
  • Love the color display and save your work capability.
Texas Instruments TI-Nspire CX CAS Graphing Calculator
  • The display makes typing long equations easy. The trackpad works well, and even has an option to tap to click instead of having to push the button.
  • The color display and shading make vector calculus much easier to understand and explain.
  • The color display is great if you vision is not what is used to be.
  • The calculator also has a beautiful color display that can be used for a number of graphing situations, including 3-dimensional plots.
  • Display failed before the 1 year warranty was up. TI says it's physically damaged (dropped, excessive pressure, got wet, etc) and therefore is not covered.

What customers say about "Features"
Texas Instruments TI-Nspire CX Graphing Calculator
  • Works great but takes a while to get used to and familiar with all the applications. Half of it I don't use yet. Love the memory feature and it's capacity.
  • I had this products for a few months now and the I have charged the battery once and it lasted me a while month, while I was using 8t every day. Great product.
  • User friendly, great design, functionality and battery life.
  • This is what's required by the school ..seems to be easy to use and battery last a long time
  • Works great. No issues with software. Battery last a long time.
  • This is my second. Battery went out after a year on the first. Only bought a second one because this is the model my daughter has to have for school.
Texas Instruments TI-Nspire CX CAS Graphing Calculator
  • This calculator is great! In my life, I will never learn the features of this calculator to its full extent. If you need something done, this calculator can do it. I personally like the built in battery.
  • I also have a TI-84 Plus CE, and the Nspire CX CAS has so many more features that I could never be without it again. That said, it's not so robust that I'm ready to give up my TI-84 Plus CE yet.
  • The included software has all the features of the actual calculator.
  • The buttons click easier, it's faster, and has a ton more features. It also comes with a code for the student software.
  • My only complaint is that it is rather difficult to learn how to use all of it's features (not that the product is difficult to use once you know how however).
  • Battery life is actually better than I expected coming from a TI-84 running on AAA batteries that lasted a few months at a time.
