I'm going to go with either the fx-9860GII or the FX-260 Solar II. 9860GII for its advance functionality and the FX-260 because it runs entirely on solar, even in very low light.

I have three, maybe four:

 

fx-cg50 - very nice display and fonts, pleasure keyboard, CASIO basic

fx-991 - many functions in compact form

TI-30X Pro MathPrint - many functions in compact form (competitor to fx-991)

fx-9860g slim hacked to 9860g II- backlight and foldable, CASIO basic

Last year I met the fx-9860gii-2, and it has now become my best calculator. 1) With the advent of CBASIC, this calculator has become a full-fledged pocket computing station. 2) Beautiful body shape. Also, the display is well suited for users with poor eyesight. 3) Compatible with previous models, starting from 7400G and up to 9850gc_plus (CASIO sometimes remembers his old fans).

I recommend the fx-9750GII. At least the model that I own has both an SH4 and 512k of RAM and can be modded to the fx-9860G2 OS.

Also, you can get it way cheaper, since CASIO sells them for less and people have no idea it's essentially the same device.

fx-5800P

 

Because I know every single function on it (it is easy to learn them all and actually remember them), it is extremely portable, is not very expensive, looks a little bit retro, and it is programmable.

@Tritonio:

Let's hope fx-5800P will be updated in the future. (It is a model that released in 2006)

Probably the fx-9750G2 with 9860G firmware, but I haven't had all that much time with the fx-CG50 that I got in December last year, so that might change.

fx-9750G2 (fx-9860G firmware)

  • Saves all your history (including clipboard from copy-paste function) to flash memory on power off.
  • Long-life flash memory (20 years, 100,000 rewrites),
  • (9860G/G2 feature) Large history that actually stores separate Ans values for prior calculations (A weakness of the non-graphing Casio's is the Ans variable is always the last answer, rather than the answer that was calculated at that point in the history). This requires "Math" mode, so the stock fx-9750G2 can't do this.
  • (9860G/G2 feature) You can go back anywhere in history, make a change and have those changes propagate through the history to the present.  This requires "Math" mode, so the stock fx-9750G2 can't do this.
  • Copy and Paste functionality across different modes.
  • SolveN function can return multiple values for functions given a range.
  • 26 matrix memory, with huge matrix size made stress-strain matrix calculations a pleasure to do.
  • Nice selection of unit conversions; can also convert multiple numbers by enclosing them in curly brackets to create lists (I think this is built in to the stock fx-9750G2 based on the manual).

I have lots of other calculators I really like, but the fx-9750G2 (and maybe the fx-CG50 with time) will likely remain my favorite.
