Actually, the 85 was a great inovation for ti over
the 81--it was a steal from the HP-48SX. The 82
was therefore a retro move to bring along the
people who were using the 81. The 82 does not
include many of the things that were in the 85, as I
found out the first day of my use of it. I told my
students that I was waiting for the 86 or 87 when
the 83 came out, which has vastly improved
features over the 82. The 83 doesn't do some of
the things that the 85 does well, and the 86 doesn't
do some of the things that the 83 does well. The
86 is a more sophisticated calculator than the 83.

What I was really waiting for was the 89--the last
of the Eighty series!
PS with my calculus students, I use the 48.
