Looking for a calculator to get you through high school and/or college? To be your friend through those complex, nearly-impossible-to-comprehend algebra and trigonometry lessons? To finally make math understandable? Look no further than Texas Instruments. Because now they have brought us two of the most futuristic and user-friendly scientific calculators on the market. Now you just have to find the one that suits you better. So, behold; the ti-36x pro vs ti-30xs multiview.
First thing you need to know is that either of these brilliant products will get the job done; whatever that job may be. What separates them is the level of detail, quality, technology and thought put into them. An example of what I mean is the display, for example. Where the TI-36X can show multiple calculations simultaneously and shows mathematical symbols and expressions as they appear in text books, the TI-30XS has different viewing modes such as MATHPRINT (for typing or reading values in their mathematical notations) and CLASSIC for those who want the least complicated user mode. The latter also uses a Liquid Crystal Display with 4 lines x 16 characters (even the best calculators usually have 2 lines) for easy viewing by the user. Furthermore, the TI-30XS (TI for Texas Industries) comes equipped with solar assistance to boost battery power and lengthen battery life. You may be noticing a trend here; everything the ’36X does the ’30XS does better. But you are yet to hear the latter’s redeeming attribute; its price.
The TI-36X will set you back $14.30; a whopping $26 less than the ’30XS. Better really is more costly, and not just by a little. If you want practicality and all the features you could nee, yet have a tight budget to adhere to, the ’36X is for you. If you have deeper pockets and want a more flamboyant, stylish gadget, the ’30XS is the one you should have.

Both these machines are very good at what they each do; being good value for money and being extremely well-equipped respectively. As such, it is clear that they will appeal to slightly dissimilar demographic. Hence, deeming one as better than the other really isn’t of use. The long and the short of it, therefore, is; for the best bang for your buck, go cheap and sensible with the TI-36X Pro. For the better overall device, money being a non-issue, go for the superior TI-30XS Multiview.
