Alas, for budget reason, we bought to my daughter the cheapest model, with

Programming games in TI Basic on a low-end calculator is a good lesson in
resource conservation. Those who had a TI 83 with its limited memory,
number of variables and images know what I mean :)

I had a TI-57 (memory wiped out when turning it off) and a TI-59 (can save programs on cardboards with a magnetic side), programmed in a kind of assembly language (but with high level functions). I wrote my first programs with them, and one of these programs gave me the winning Lotto numbers allowing me to buy my first computer! (a CBM 4016...)
