Texas Instruments TI-Nspire CX Graphing Calculator Review and Giveaway Holiday Gift Guide

The Texas Instruments TI-Nspire CX is one of the latest graphing calculator models used for mathematics, data, graphing, geometry, spreadsheets, calculating and much more. The calculator itself is very thin in comparison to some of the older Texas instrument models, making it sleek and easy to store. This calculator is great for almost every use and it's even in COLOR! No it's no longer in grey scale but in full color and it's the first model with a back light making it easy to read and it looks great.

When you first turn on the calculator you select the language you want to use and your location. Then it sends you to the home screen that has all of your applications listed. The middle of it has a track pad that you graze your finger over it to navigate and click the middle 'ok' button to select. The track pad makes it easy and quick to switch from each task, and is much smoother than figuring out which buttons to click to move the mouse to a different selection. One of the coolest features about this calculator is that you can connect it to your computer with a USB cord and download documents, games, and even pictures straight to your calculator.

The programming is simple and straightforward and easy to use if your new (or an expert) to the TI system. Another great thing about this calculator is it doesn't take batteries! With the calculator comes a rechargeable battery and the wall hookup to charge it. All around GREAT calculator and it has really helped me out in school. It looks nice, has great features, is easy to use and is also a fun toy to have. This calculator retails for $159 to $144 depending on the store and I would definitely recommend purchasing this calculator it's a great investment and is very helpful inside and outside the classroom.
