You are better off with this one:

Not sure when it expires but it comes with a PIC24, PIC33 and a PIC32MX2, it is Version 2 of the board you linked too and is less than half the price.


Cheers
Chris

I purchased the other one. I am just reporting on a new promo. I have no intention of buying this new one. The comment about the shipping is just that, a comment.

I'm ordering one, but they're currently out of stock.  Supposed to be available middle of July.
