I bought the Casio fx-9860G Slim Graphing Calculator because of the combination of enhanced and easy to use functionality, with a superb display. After previously using other powerful calculators with tiny font sizes and confusing/massive instructions at times, this is a major step up. It has everything needed for most mathematics - calculus, equation solvers, stats, spreadsheets, graphing, programming, recursion etc. and once connected to the Casio Web page using the included Casio software link, other apps can be added - the geometry app is fun and useful. For the cost, this clobbers the higher priced competition - I donated a calculator that cost twice as much to my employer's charity Christmas raffles. I had given up on calculators in favor of laptop/PC based math codes, but now it is fun again to use a calculator for courses and to just sit back at work sometimes & crank the numbers while going through tech. publications.

I have owned top of the line graphing and scientific calculators from TI, HP, Casio, Sharp, etc. This machine, the Casio FX-9860g Slim version, continues the Casio quality tradition and is definitely put together very well. It is also a very good improvement over its predecessor, the Casio FX-9860g, with a very fine pocketable clamshell portable design with a much improved keyboard layout except for the location of the Navigation keypad itself, etc. At $69.99 right now from one of the quality suppliers in NJ on the Amazon website, it is indeed a very great deal!

The pros and cons as I see it are:

PROS:

1) It has all the standard features that we have come to expect on such a machine, plus the inclusion of an electronic OS upgrade capability from the Casio educational website. This is done using a USB interface with a PC computer and is also quite fast and easy to set up. The current OS production version is 1.10, but it can be upgraded to the OS version 2.0 (which is almost entirely compatible with the current system hardware) at Casio's educational website.

2) The machine itself is quite fast with a nice graphical interface and resultant plotting system. The resultant plots are high quality and with the many added features available for enhancement are very intuitive for the learning process.

3) It has a nice and quite modern, folding clamshell body design that sits very nicely both on a desk or a table as well as in your hand. It even has two feet for great stability that are constructed on the bottom at the back of the very well made unit.

4) It has a very large amount of onboard main memory, plus additional Flash memory for tackling quite memory intensive problems.

This calculator graphs things about 5 times faster than any other calculator (comparing to hp 48gx, ti 92+). It's a pretty straight forward calculator. Another cool feature is mini-excel application, so you can massage big sets of numbers to your liking. I was at a bar having a graph argument, and thank god I had this folding calculator with backlight in my pocket ready to settle this argument, but even though I was right I was kicked out of the bar. Your results may vary :) It's not as smart as hp48/49/50 or a ti89/92/voyage, but it gets its points in portability and the oh-so-important night usability, as well as raw computational quickness (this thing never shows an hour glass), it literally graphs a sinewave in 1/4 of a second across the screen.

I purchased a TI-89 Titanium which was packed with excellent features but the font size and display screen gave me a headache in about 10 minutes. An acquaintance suggested the fx-9860G Slimline. I am glad I took the chance. This is an EXCELLENT graphing calculator with an easy-to-use key layout and the screen is just fantastic for us >62 guys. The backlighting helps much more than I would have expected. The graphing quality is as good as any of the other over-priced jobs out there. Also the speed is much BETTER than some of the other products on the market.

There is an excellent on-line help feature that is quite easy to use once you get the hang of it. Also one can add applications by connecting to the Casio web site via the supplied USB cable. The item comes packaged with a flimsy Quick-Start guide with very tiny font and pale lettering but I just used the enclosed CD to copy, print, and enlarge the Quick-Start. Also the CD comes with a full-fledged User's Manual in PDF format that is 600 pages! Yes, you read it correctly - 600 pages.

I mostly use the calculator for integration, min-max, and plotting. But later I'll probably hit the statistics portion quite often.

There is one drawback with this product and that is it does not come with the Computer_Algebra_System and there is no 3D graphing. But for 3D I use the software on my laptop and right now I don't need 3D that often. The CAS thing is somewhat inhibiting but for the price of this item and for what it does this is a GREAT VALUE. Casio surely hit a home run with the slimline. Hopefully in a couple of years I'll get the workpad also by Casio.
