Re: What's the longest you've used a particular graphing calculator on a regular basis?

Travis Evans

Generally, each time I've gotten a new calculator, it quickly became my main one, and I no longer used the older ones much. (Nowadays, there's an exception, where I currently use both my TI89t and HP 50g often.) So the breakdown becomes:
TI81: A few months to a year?
TI82: About a year or two
TI85, TI86: About three years each
TI89, TI89t: About 5–6 years each
So the winner will soon (if not already) be my 89t, since I use it more than my old, battered 89.

I only ever use one calculator at a time. I've hoarded all the old ones though. I've used the following extensively:
Casio FX4000P 19861993  7 years (at school). Not graphing but worth a mention.
TI82 19931997  4 years.
TI86 19972011  14 years
TI Nspire CAS 2011now
Also use a TI92 (not plus!) on and off that someone gave me but I just can't get on with it as you really have to lug the manual around.
I've spent less than a new TI84 on all of the above together.

lasted through a few years of heavy use (2009?2012), now even setting it down makes some power connection inside the case fail and crashes it x.x

Used a TI85 for all of last year in school and this year I'm using a TI86 I picked up. Also have a TI83+ but that and the TI85 I use as loan outs for now, people seem to want an iPhone over a calculator (and I would rather the 13 TI89s or maybe even HP 50Gs for the same price).
