I've looked everywhere for a comparison chart of all the different models of *duino.  Does such a chart exist?

You know, like lists the models down the left side, then the features accross the top, with checkmarks in the body?

Thanks.

Strongly opinionated, but not official!

What would you consider to be "the features" worth listing?

i have no idea.  I'm new to this and curious about the different models, I would think there would be some place to compare them all?

something like this
http://www.arduino.cc/en/Main/Hardware

but with all the boards listed (that is not a complete list)

Ezee,

don't waste your time with looking for the perfect comparison list, it won't help you much with making your choice. Take a more balanced approach.

First decide what you need. Is the regular Arduino good enough or do you need a version running on 3.3V, one specially small, one with motor drivers, with Blue Tooth, RTC, Ethernet, accelerometers, gyrometers, Ethernet, LED-matrix drivers or a Flash card already included or one with a lot more ports? If your answer is either "No", "I don't know" or "Maybe in the future", you don't need the speciality versions and you can go with the regular Arduino Uno or Duemilanove compatible.

Next decide on a what else you need - sensors, starter kits, booklets, displays, robot chassis, motors, Gigawatt laser turrets etc and look for a shop that sells most the stuff you want at prices you're willing to pay. Once you found that look for whatever clones they offer (and have in stock) and take the one you like most. In the end, the pricing is pretty similar and the differences are insignificant. You probably won't save mare than a dollar or two, which quickly can be eaten up by shipping when ordering elsewhere.

With this, you won't go wrong and it will save you a lot time wasted otherwise rehashing lists.
