the usefulness of the AD extends way beyond the tutorial as you say.
For me a key reason why this is such a good product is the software which is reliable, super fast and well designed. Yes, there are limitations, but I'd rather have a slick reliable interface to deal with than a buggy stuttering half finished over featured bug infested UI. A second reason is that you have almost all you need on the road to do embedded development integrated into a small package.

I doubt that the student price even covers the BoM cost, it's a marketing tool for AD and Digilent to get their names out there.

Thank you everyone! I am super excited with the decision I made  :)  I ended up getting a saelae logic analyzer as well and a bunch of little sensors and parts so I think it went well overall. Thank you for everyone's advice! I feel like I will get a lot from these guys. :)

My wife just cleared me to buy $475 worth of test equipment in a month and a half.

So how did you pull off spending more money, looks like you went way over the $475.

Flipped something that turned a $1500 profit and the wife said i could go up to $100 over my original estimate.  Good catch! ;)
