The 49G+ storage case is nice, but it doesn't leave room for much other than the calculator.
For the active, modern, on-the-go graphing calculator user, consider this: Office Depot (in my area, at least) is clearing out zip-up Mead "FiveStar" TI calculator pouches with a sorta-rigid external case, an internal elasticized calculator pocket with velcro-closed, TI-logo-emblazoned cover flap, and (on the opposite side) a pen loop and a funky pad of pseudo-graph/note paper. (Only $1.44 .)
After cutting the stitching to remove the velcro and cover flap, replacing the supplied notepad with a decent spiral-bound item, and inserting a nice Parker gel pen, I've got more than a calculator -- I've got a calculator use and support system. ;^)
(Actually, it's bulkier, but more complete. Unfortunately, it won't quite store the USB cable too. Time will tell if I actually make use of it . . . )
