Read this with your humor in tact, as it's a light hearted question that I would like to have analyzed by the masses that frequent this board. I appreciate all input.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

I've been calculator shopping and the packages fail to list important details on frequent occasions. I want a non-graphing, scientific calculator that I'm most likely allowed to use on my tests with the following abilities:

- Answer in fractional or decimal form
- Trigonometric identities in both degree and radian form
- Solve for unknown variables algebraically
- Compute derivatives and antiderivatives, both definitly and indefinitely.
- Password protected as a theft deterrent
- USB or similar connection for updates, hacking, etc...
- Mp3 player, digital camera, cell phone, flash drive, and GPS navigator functionality...while I'm dreaming.

2. Relevant equations

Currently using the TI-30Xiis I bought back in middle school and my love, the TI-89 Titanium. MATLAB, if that counts...but I can't very well carry it around with me. Think my professors would allow me to use a calculator I craft myself? haha, no. I asked.

3. The attempt at a solution

Casio FX-115w - which disappoints me

THANKS!
