my collection with a mint in package TI-80. It was after my time, but
the TI-81 was the first of the models in 1990 followed by the 82 and 85
which I have each of. Many hours in math class programming them rather
than pay attention of course. I do want a 92 at some point as it was a
monster of a "calculator" but I did buy a 89 in college when they came out.
While not the most interesting historically, they were a part of the
90's school experience along with the fascination with multimedia
learning, with uses and lesson plans sometimes seemingly forced to make
use of "technology."
On a side note, I did use a HP48g as a serial terminal, connected to a
Hayes "pocket modem" via paperclips as well.
