Where is the option "I already have seven?" :P

Among color-screen calculators, I got the TI-84 Plus C Silver Edition, TI-84 Plus CE, TI-Nspire CX, Casio fx-CG10, ClassPad II, CFX-9850G (1996) and HP Prime.

Also Casio won the color calculator race by 15 years :P

You can always play games on it. It's a nice (but expensive) alternative to the Atari 2600 and Colecovision :P

Indeed, on the CSE/CE you can play such games as Sord of Atari, which is even better than E.T.

What about "I made a black & white one do color?"

As I have probably mentioned before, I accidentally got my TI-86 to display color while trying to do grayscale without interrupts...not very well, but definitely distinct vertical stripes of red & green (& yellow & blue, but those were just from adjusting the contrast). I also got it to work on my HW2 TI-92+, but the TI-80 seems probably too slow to do it even at its highest clock speed, & I do not recall ever having tried to get it to work on any other model.

Haha I remember that color on 86 pic a few years ago. I forgot where it was, but it looked like green and orange. On lower z80 models like the 84+, you can turn the entire screen blue via test mode (can damage the LCD) and on the regular 83+ (except the French models released in 2013) you can display blue lines randomly via the same mode.

It was on my personal website at members.cox.net, but Cox discontinued that service, & I have never gotten around to finding a new host.

I have no idea if it could damage the LCD. In person, the colors look like the ones you get if you poke an LCD (which incidentally is impossible on the TI-86 due to the extra layer of clear hard plastic), so it might be possible, but I never had a problem, & the code did not change any registers, just the framebuffer data.

I got the TI-NSpire CX CAS soon after it came out.

I haven't done much with it/used it for too much, but it seemed like something that would have a good amount of potential, so made it my first calculator purchase since the awesome TI-89 back when I was in high school.

I have 3 TI84+CEs. I should probably stop getting more color calculators. Oh well.

You mean to say you *only* have 3 TI-84+CEs. :D

I would take a donation if you are trying to get rid of one. :p I'm still on the slow 84CSE.

Hehe! If only there was a rational excuse to pursuade my dad to get a 84+CE, I would get one! Pretty happy withe the monochrom 84+SE (the speed beats the 84+cse and CE by a long shot).

Programming for color is more difficult. My TI 83+ is my best friend (grayscale)
