We talked about buying a bunch of arduino boards together. Now is the time if you were thinking of buying one anyway.
here an overview of the types:
the Duomilanove This is the basic board. € 22,-
the Arduino Mini same number of connections as the basic board, but less memory. € 35,- (including USB-serial converter)
the Arduino Nano even smaller than the mini, but less connections too. € 44,-
the Arduino Mega many more connections, larger memory. € 49,-
the Arduino Lilypad an arduino version made to be incorporated into clothing (more fragile, however) € 21,-
if you have no preference, get a Duemilanove or a Arduino Mega.
Prices mentioned exclude VAT (BTW) and shipping.
To be 100% sure about pricing, check the information given by the manufacturer. Please let me know if you are aware of cheaper options: there are much more providers now than there were last time I ordered. Also please let me know if I made a mistake in summarizing the specifications.
You can order by commenting on this post; please mention which type. I will order on wednesday evening.
