I've been very excited to see this become available.  In terms of Euros it looks to be about $104.  But when I go to purchase it and select shipping, the only option is UPS Express Saver.  That on its own wouldn't be a big deal, but the quote for shipping is €61.57 - about $80.00! Unless Google's conversion rate is completely wrong, this is a crazy number.

There isn't a chance on earth that I'd pay that much for shipping for something this small.  Do you have any US suppliers?

Thanks,

starting from zero on the Due is not recommended.
Get the starter kit and learn on the Uno then when you're an expert consider the Due.

Thank you - that's exactly what I wanted to know.  I appreciate you taking the time!

Hi,

I've been looking at the Arduino Due info, and as a completely inexperienced person coming into this for the first time I am not sure as to the significance of that release.  When it is released will the kit be updated to include the Due instead of the Uno r3 board? 

While I don't want to spend a ton getting into something I haven't done before, I do want to make sure that I have the best tools to learn with.  If the Due is released and the kit doesn't replace the Uno board, should I still go for the Due and buy the starter kit as well?  And would the lessons taught in the starter kit translate for use on the Due?

Thank you for any insight you can provide!
