It took me a while of using the Prime before I noticed that there was an i on Shift + 2. I had been using lowercase i. I suppose it is not completely redundant as it provides some consistency in key strokes between Home and CAS. Lowercase i requires a shift in Home but not in CAS. There is a similar issue with e. On the Npsire, there are 4 different e's: lowercase e, uppercase E, scientific notation E, and the constant e, and they are all distinct. The Prime has three e's but they seem to be at least partially interchangeable. 1.23e4 = 1.23E4 = 1.234E4 = 12300. I got snagged on this once when I tried to calculate something like 2*e^3 but tried to use implied multiplication 2e^3 and got a syntax error that I incorrectly thought was a bug. Similar issue with the negative character and subtraction character.
