Hello everyone! Is it April already? I could swear 2013 just started.
This is just a comparison between two graphing calculators: TI-84+ Color Silver Edition (TI-84+ CSE) vs Casio Prizm (fx-CG 10/20) Color Command Comparison. I own one of both models (no joke!) and enjoy using them. But it's fun to compare the two - even if it is out of pure curiosity.
Year of first release:
Casio Prizm: 2011
TI-84+ CSE: 2013
Casio Prizm, 8 colors: Black, Blue, Red, Magenta, Green, Cyan, Yellow, White
TI-84+ CSE, 15 colors: Blue, Red, Black, Magenta, Green, Orange, Brown, Navy, Light Blue, Yellow, White, Light Gray, Medium Gray, Gray, Dark Gray
How to access the colors:
Casio Prizm: [SHIFT] [ 5 ] (FORMAT)

Here are some of the programming commands that use color:
