I'm going to buy an arduino, just to tinker with, and am wondering if I should wait for the the Due. Considering it's beefier specs, I think we can safely assume that it will be more expensive than the Uno. Has anyone been really limited by the current processor and RAM?

Is it worth waiting, or will the Uno be enough for a noob?

Thanks.

Uhm, I guess even if the Due would be available it would be wise to start with the UNO. The Due is much more complex. It is an embedded system, so I don't think you will run into problems. If you want to do video processing it is better to wait for the Due smiley

I don't think I'll need video processing for a while smiley, so I'll just go the Uno.

Thanks heaps for the reply!

Actually running out of RAM is a common problem, however it's easily fixed by using a Mega or one of the 644/1284 clones around.

The Due should be nice but it doesn't sound like you need one yet.

Agreed, learn to use a UNO first, there is lots of mileage in that. Also it is a 5V system that is much easer to interface with.
