TI-84PlusSE_TBL_BOX.jpg (389638 Byte)This colorful TI-84 Plus Silver Edition was introduced for the Back-to-School 2007 campaign by retailer Target together with its pink sibbling and pink editions of the TI-503SV and TI-30X IIS. In addition we noticed a blue TI-83 Plus in the shelves of Target.

TI-84PlusSE_TA_BL2007_Back.jpg (228920 Byte)In 2007 Texas Instruments sold on its website faceplates in 15 different colors: Black, brown, dark red, red, pink, purple, dark blue, blue, light blue, green, gold, orange, bright orange, grey and white. Except bright orange were matching slide cases available, too. One special "Data Collection" snap-on faceplate highlights the keys and functions of the Vernier EasyData™ application.

The TI-84 Plus Silver Edition supports the ViewScreen panel and the TI-Presenter with an Presentation Link Adapter. A serial port of the calculators allows the connection to the Calculator-Based Laboratory system CBL, its successor CBL 2 and the Calculator-Based Ranger CBR. The added USB interface of the TI-84 Plus family calculators connects directly with the Calculator-Based Ranger CBR 2 introduced in 2004. With a new cradle even the optional full-sized QWERTY Keyboard introduced in 2002 matches with the TI-84 Plus series.
