I recently obtained a TI-89 Titanium off of Amazon.com. I really, really like it.

any of the TI-8X series or TI-21X series can be programmed in TI-basic or assembly (Z80), and most of the models in current manufacture have an enlarged RAM / enlarged ROM model associated with them (usually name Silver / Titanium / other transition metal...). All models (at least the one's I've owned / used) had fairly complete overview to TI-basic and the particular model's API in the owner's manual.

the TI-83 is a lower cost machine that can be hooked to a PC via USB, and has moderate storage, processor, and a slimmer firmware

the TI-89 has a much more involved firmware, and can also be connected to a PC. This model tends to more pricey.

Unfortunately, it seems the TI-86 appears to no longer be marketed, I had one for about 8 years (it got me through university), finally died when the LCD failed.

I've not used any of HP's machines, but I've heard good things about them.

Hope this helps,

-Jerome

The TI-89 uses 68k assembly (it's a different processor).

BTW: I had a TI-84 Plus Silver Edition before, and I could never go back!
