Good for all math except trig!

I’m disappointed that despite the vast, and often useless capabilities the Nspire has, it can’t do something as simple as give an answer in irrational form nor can it give an answer in radical form. For example, If you type in cos(π/4), the answer it gives you 0.707 instead of (sqrt 2)/2. This is just a simple example but imagine trying to figure out something more complicated. Defeats the purpose of a calculator. The Nspire CAS can give results as irrational and radical so I’m not sure why the non cas version cant. It’s just odd that their most advanced (and expensive) calculator can’t provide answers in their irrational or radical form especially since basic scientific calculators can.
Pros: The Nspire is like a mini computer (with a touchpad mouse and everything), it can store notes and perform many other tasks efficiently.
I think this is an amazing device for anyone not doing trig equations. It really can do a lot, much more than most people need tbh. But beware that most colleges don’t allow students to use the Nspire, or any graphing calculator for that matter, on exams because of the fact that it does give you the answers and it’s note storing capability. You’d only be able to use it in high school or at home for personal use, that’s what I had planned on doing. So if you’re willing to dish out the money when it’s unusable past high school, has a VERY steep learning curve and isn’t efficient for trigonometry, go for it!
