Normally, computers can only have a certain ammount of precision for numeric values due to size constraints (a double is only 128 bits). An arbitrary precision calculator is one that uses system memory to preform non-standard mathmatical operations. Such a calculator would be able to raise 2^2^16, or find pi to the four millionth digit.
