So as a freshman in Computer Engineering, my professor wants me to get a TI Voyage 200 calculator for all of my math courses, Circuits analysis etc. Those run almost $200. I was thinking of buying some sort of PDA instead and finding software that can perform the functions of a TIV200.

Question is: Can you recommend a cheap PDA and more importantly, calculator software that will run on it? Something that I can afford, given my poor college student budget.

Not sure about the TiV200, but the Ti83/86 is easily obtainable for PocketPC and Palm. Personally found it to work best on my PocketPC.

That's fine by me, but can you recommend a PDA that would be ideal? And Cheap?

Any touchscreen based PocketPC would give you the most options if you're willing to pay and finding 300+mhz Xscale/Arm/etc models isn't hard there's a ton of 3 year old ipaq models out there.

However if it's the only thing you're doing with it you could use a cheap Palm Zire.

Just make sure you find the software you prefer first. Finding cheap capable PDAs is the easy part.

Heck I'd almost sell you my UTStarcomm as a 321mhz PocketPC if it weren't for the white screens of death that plague it.
