iPods, iPads, even monthly cell phone bills all cost around, or more than, $150.  I don't think the price is too high but Cabe makes a good point that the pricing is going in the wrong direction.  I wonder why.

I would think the $150 pricetag would still be tough for many college students to come up with.

Their price is going in the wrong direction. I have a TI-89 from college, and a TI-80 - a simple calculator for everyday use. But as I use my smartphone more and more for calculations, I wonder if TI will be able to stay relevant.  Once my phone handles differential equations, TI will be in the catch-up game.

I have a TI 81 that I had to save up for in high school.  It has been through a lot, and it is still one of my favorite engineering tools.  The new color version may be just the thing to spur me on to a nee one.  It looks like TI is going in the right direction.
