Quote:Maybe and hopefully soon, HP release a new firmware that has a better administration of RAM, with periodic cleaning to optimize to the maximum the memory so that the calculator does not "hang" doing operations like USB transfers, doing math, etc.
And, in a complementary manner, a new calculator model which fixes the Prime's skimping on the total size of the RAM, first and foremost...
The current iteration of the Prime will be hampered in the exact same way as the '2007 TI-Nspire Clickpad and '2010 TI-Nspire Touchpad were, for the same reason: on the first order, the weight of the OS only increases over time, due to new features. Both monochrome Nspire models (with a terrible screen) had 32 MB of RAM as well. End result: TI has given up on OS upgrades for those models, because the low amount of free RAM was interfering with relatively normal usage of the calculator.
The issue was worsened by the insanely inefficient document format used by TI, but still.

I wouldn't be posting this if the '2013 Prime had at least as much RAM as the '2011 Nspire CX, i.e. 64 MB. With 64 MB of RAM, even doubling the weight of the Nspire or Prime OS binaries would still leave a sizable amount of memory accessible to the user Smile
