If cost were the only deciding factor I would buy this
Also the pre-loaded chips are $7.00 which is price competitive with a
PIC of similar capabilities.
Doing more homework it does seem like the arduino is a bit easier to
program since it uses C or at least a very C like language. But how
about reliability? This is going to be a process control application,
if it fails it could have serious repurcussions for very expensive
