Re: 83 vs. 85/86
Unless you want the advanced statistics or sequence graphing on the TI-83,
the TI-85 is still much better. Some advantages are larger screen,
variables can be named so there's no limit to the number of variables,
multiple number bases, much better matrix and vector math, better calculus,
simultaneous equation and polynomial solver, unit conversions, more
standard programming and math functions (such as mod), a custom menu,
equation variables (so you don't have to write a program for every formula
you have), physical constants, and differential equation graphing.
There is no question that the TI-85 is overall a better calculator. That's
why the TI-83 is numbered lower, even though it's newer!

Well.....Okay. Maybe the 86 is better than the 83. I guess. But I
really do think the 83 is better than the 85. Just my opinion. BTW,
why doesn't the 85/86 have split screen? I know that I have used it a
lot on my 83.
