        Comments about Parallax 40000-RT Propeller QuickStart Board:

        When you're ready to graduate to real microcontrollers from the Arduino, try this. It's powerful enough to run an autopilot or a RTOS.

                      Delighted RS is getting back to having useful components. The Propeller is potential that takes effert to get to. The Prop is a better chip, but the Arduino family is better supported. If you have no other Prop board choice, this will get you going. But it's kind of a dead-end board, as the pinout doesn't interface with anything. The MGHDesigns Propeller ASC gives you Arduino pin compatibility, 6 channels of A/D, etc.

                          Its really hard to justify buying this item from radio shack, its 15$ higher in price than on the parallax website (before taxes at radio shack or shipping from parallax)

                          Heck even after I added on shipping (USPS) its still a 12 dollar difference. Just get it from parallax,take the money you saved and buy a breadboard to go with it, and still end up with change.
