    All the ones I've tried have sucked. Is there a good one that I haven't heard of?

    I'm looking for something like a TI-86 or 89. And something that doesn't use much CPU or memory.

    The PowerToy graphing calculator is a good replacement for the calc that comes with XP (and free), otherwise Mathematica or Maple(s?).

    If you dig just a little on ticalc.org, you should be able to find VTI (Virtual TI). It requires a ROM (or ROMs), but if you have an existing TI which you can connect to a computer, then you're definitely good to go. I think there's legal TI-89/92 ROMs out there from TI's website (I think all you have to do is download TI's ROM update and VTI will read it). Its ideal if you're developing for the TI. Its a little clunky for every day use, but if you're comfy with the TI interface, it might be a good fit for you...
