I am currently a sophomore in high school taking Algebra 2 and Precalculus in the same year. Junior year I’ll be taking AP BC Calculus and then Senior year Multivariable Calculus. I currently have a TI 84 (regular), and I was wondering which calculator to get next? I understand I won’t be able to rely on a calculator to solve literally everything, and that’s not even what I want. Thank you!

I bought the TI 89 for a few reasons. 1: I can do all of the algebra very easily by hand, and so when I get to college, and I know that I know basic algebra, I don’t have to spend time factoring, FOILing, etc. But the calculus operations are amazing. The 89 has limits, and a button for infinity. It also has more coordinate systems which are useful for physics. The 3D graphing is very cool because it helps you understand how the graphing works. All around more advanced and a long term option. Only problem is that it may take a while to get used to.
