Don't compare hardware only, in some sec schools it is compulsory to have laptops, compare that to calculator, no need to compare already, don't you think so?

FX95SGPlus is the best mainstream calculator model for IP/SAP/Express streams although I know VJC's sec 3 IP uses TI graphical calculators as well.

Compulsory to have laptops? Wow...so how about those under-privileged families? Do they HAVE to get laptops or is it optional for them? Or is it subsidised by the school or Government? If so, does that mean that they get a basic laptop?
