It crashed literally every ten minutes, the keyboard failed to respond to every third keystroke, and the CAS was a joke compared to that of the TI-89 (Derive!). It took a new hardware with new colors and new keyboard internals, a name change and countless firmware upgrades to correct most of the bugs.

b) Countless firmware upgrades. There weren't that many (don't count the unofficial ones). The Prime has had in 3 years twice as many firmware updates as the 49G+/50g combined (which is both a good thing and a bad thing).

Really, for a true comparison you'd have to count all the development time spent with the 28, 48s/g, and 49g since they were direct evolution from the common base. That probably means you have at least 5-6 years of work if not more to get the "50g" in its final form.
