I'm very experienced with ti basic and plan to convert one of my games to the ti 84+ce. What is the best place to learn the different command on the ce (such as colored lines)

Not sure. I will like the answer to this question too. It's weird how there hasn't been any replies yet.
Oh, this one went past my notifications. The best places are cemetech, ticalc.org tutorials and here. There isn't much documentation for the model here, so the best place is cemetech. I think Kerm also wrote a tutorial book for it.
Most of the changes between the non color and color are graphical, so all that's needed is some changes in Windows and pixels and the like. You shouldn't have to worry about speed since the CE has a better processor than the 84
The Silver Phantom welcomes you
As Silver said, the changes are mainly color based, and there are also window differences in both the home screen and the graph screen.
The monochrome calculators (83/84+/SE) have a home screen with 8 rows and 16 columns. The CE is 10 by 26. The graph screen on the monochrome calculators is 94 wide by 62 pixels tall; the CE is 264 by 164 pixels. As for the addition of color, a lot of the graph based drawing commands will have optional additional arguments to specify color. For example, the Line( command's arguments would be: "Line(X1,Y1,X2,Y2[,erase#[,color#,linestyle#]])". If you want to see the syntax for any command just like this, just press the + button when you are hovering over a command in a menu. Of course, you need a color calculator to see that with the color arguments, so I guess that wouldn't help much… we do need some more documentation.
Hope this helps.
Thanks that will help me a lot more when I receive it from Christmas :)
How do you use the full size of the screen on the CE? Can this done in basic or does it have to to be done in assembly?
I think it is possible with the C libraries as well.
