HP Prime can be great for everyone!

Prime experts can program an Application Library that add major functionality to the HP Prime, such as Han's Graph3D.hpaddddir app listed above. Application Libraries like Graph3D can benefit students as well as professionals and show the possibility of what can be done.

Han's Newton's Method discussion allow us to look at porgrams such as newt2.hpprgm program listed above. Following his discussion of various techniques we can create our own programs while giving us a program that can be used by students and professionals.

Edward Shore's eqnlib Application Library gives us an application professional and students can use, plus along with his Blog shows us how to program the HP Prime. I just mentioned Han and Edward but really appreciate all the contributors and posters in this forum.

Now it is true that there are not the applications libraries of other calculators but the potential is there.

Students can begin by using the HP Prime Free - Lite (iOS) on their phone, ipad, or tablet. The CAS and HOME view will serve the majority of their needs. HOME view for calculations plus [a b/c] key for decimals, improper fractions, and mixed numerals. CAS view menus with operations such as factor and solve.

When they need the next step for courses such as Finite Math (applied algebra for management and social sciences) they can use the HP Prime Free - Lite's [Define] key to add functions such as lineptm, linept1pt1, and pivmat and CAS variables such as cpint, ira, and loan. Trig students can add the CAS Polar to Rectangular and Rectangular to Polar Define functions.

Students who were using as a tool, that discover more interest in the Prime, can buy the HP Prime Pro or HP Calculator with virtual software and start writing program collections such ArithSeries, CalcSecTan, and CalcSketch and Application Libraries such as FncIncDecConvUpDn, FncSecTanLines, and GraphPLus listed above. These programs and Application Libraries are discussed in my eBook and printed Book on the HP Prime and Algebra Fundamentals.
