Where to get large display (Like TI-83) calulator that is non-programmable?

  1. Apr 12, 2009 #1
    My Fluid Mechanics teacher doesn't allow programmable calculators and he checks before the exam. I asked him and he said we can have any large display calculator as long as it isn't programmable. Has anyone seen such a thing? I really am dependent on the giant LCD that shows the equation after I put in my numbers. Any suggestions?

    I'd suggest an HP, but all the HP's with large graphic screens are programmable (except for a couple of business/financial calcs)! But the screens don't get much bigger than the one on the Casio ClassPad 330. AND it's a touch screen! Resolution 240 x 160. TI's are fine, but DON'T GET THE TI-Nspire! They seem to have a lot of problems. Check out this YouTube video--for a non-programmable (non-HP, non-RPN) calculator, this one is pretty impressive. Watch the video!
