Don't have any pictures but I have quite a few calculators...

In order of Preference:
1) Ti-89 Titanium <- Can literally do anything I need it too and more
2) TI-83 Plus
3) Ti-36X Pro <- My most used calculator as we had to use FE approved calculators in most of my classes and this was the most powerful one that was approved.
4) Ti-30XIIS
5) Ti-30XS
6) HP 39gs <- Never used as it can actually communicate with other 39gs's so you can actually cheat if someone else had one near you(which is convenient if no one knows lol)

The tools of the engineering student, the Casio fx-991MS and the fx-991EX (Classwiz).

I've been thinking of doing a post on all my mechanical pencils and pens sometime as the collection has grown quite a bit.

"Because keyboards are accessories to PC makers, they focus on minimizing the manufacturing costs. But thats incorrect. Its in HHKBs slogan, but when Americas cowboys were in the middle of a trip and their horse died, they would leave the horse there. But even if they were in the middle of a desert, they would take their saddle with them. The horse was a consumable good, but the saddle was an interface that their bodies had gotten used to. In the same vein, PCs are consumable goods, while keyboards are important interfaces." - Eiiti Wada

Eh, I actually really like the look of the FX-991 EX. Nice colors and the texture is pleasant. Incredible calculator, though the name 'Classwiz' is pretty tacky. I still use both interchangeably though as some things are a bit quicker to access on the FX-991 MS, such as the engineering units (milli, micro, nano, etc).

Casio is the way to go for dealing with complex numbers, in my opinion.

Planning on adding an HP 12C and some TI-84 model later this year.

Those Д, Ч and Ю look terrible.
(...)Whereas back then I wrote about the tyranny of the majority, today I'd combine that with the tyranny of the minorities. These days, you have to be careful of both. They both want to control you. The first group, by making you do the same thing over and over again. The second group is indicated by the letters I get from the Vassar girls who want me to put more women's lib in The Martian Chronicles, or from blacks who want more black people in Dandelion Wine.
I say to both bunches, Whether you're a majority or minority, bug off! To hell with anybody who wants to tell me what to write. Their society breaks down into subsections of minorities who then, in effect, burn books by banning them. All this political correctness that's rampant on campuses is b.s.

If it had higher rez, wouldn't hesitate, but it's still essentially the classic 84.
