is that a good deal? Not even opened, its on clearence at a local walmart near my house.
HallsofIvy said:Not bad. I just googled "TI 89" and "sale" and see that Best Buy has them for $150. other stores seem to range from $140 to $170.
TMNT said:yah i was bargain hunting around also i saw the same range as you did, but walmart has like about 5-7 in stock, and i doubt it anyone will buy a TI-89, so should I just wait and check back every week to see if the price drops, or should just buy it right now?
Tide said:Is 5 or 10 dollars worth the wait while also running the risk that they WILL be sold out? How badly do you want it?
Tide said:You didn't mention what you would be using the calculator for or what your needs are. A TI-89 could be overkill while a $14 TI-XII30 may be adequate.
the TI-89's are nice, no doubt, but there's not a whole lot more they can do than the 83. i don't think it would be worth the money for the upgrade.TMNT said:well I'm a civil engineering major, and my uncle is an engineer also whenever he helps me out with tutoring he uses his ti-89 all the time and tells me to get it, cause i will need it eventually
and i already gota ti-83, but he reccommended me getting a ti-89 instead
I would have to disagree.syko sykes said:the TI-89's are nice, no doubt, but there's not a whole lot more they can do than the 83. i don't think it would be worth the money for the upgrade.
by 89 standards though, that is a pretty good price for a new one.
