A Non-Graphing Calculator with CAS? Thoughts...? - mr-scorpio - 02-14-2013

A general question.
When you compare the latest series of NON-Graphing but full matrix display Scientific Calculators that are able to symbolically represent equations in a 'textbook' style.
E:G: TI-36X Pro, FX-991ES Plus, F-789SGA, HP300s

All the above calculators have a formidable collection of scientific capabilities & can display them symbolically.
However, would there be any merit / use in actually taking the next step & incorporating a Computer Algebra System in to non-graphing scientifics' like the above?
Meaning that they could truly operate symbolically, simplify & so on... Just not graph. In fact what they can do already blurs the line somewhat as it is...
Your thoughts?

All I'm gonna say is, I'd buy one. At the right price.
