    These little things are awesome. You can do so much with them. The online compiler has never been an issue since internet access is very common. If anything, the online compiler is a huge convenience. You don’t spend hours installing and upgrading tool chains and you can be up and running with a pretty complex application in the same time it would take to install those tool chains. However, for those that absolutely need an offline compiler, mbed.org does a fairly good job of getting you up and running with both free and paid tool chains that will work with the mbed. I purchase my first mbed about 6 months ago to test out and now I have over 10 of them. It has quickly become by favorite microcontroller.

    One issue I have with them is that they “brick” fairly easily. Much more so than any other microcontroller I have used so you have to be careful with them. Stay within their operating range and they work amazingly well. In my opinion, they are worth every penny.

No public wish lists :(
