Texas Instruments - long wait times

So I ordered a couple of the MSP430 LaunchPad boards two weeks ago just to discover they were on back order.  After speaking with someone in support on Monday, TI is fully stocked....just received both boards today :)


@Maxhirez,Yep. The kit came


Yep. The kit came with two controllers, 8KB Flash and 16KB Flash.  

I’ve been messing around with the Arduino for quite a while but could not pass up the opportunity to get the launchPad because of the price point. That said I’ll be sure to post something here first when I start mucking around with it.  

Interesting comments on the RaspPi - I followed the development early on before its launch but my interest fell off for other reasons.
