I prefer Atmega1284P based boards. 32 IO, dual hardware serial ports, 16K SRAM, DIP for thruhole projects, 44 TQFP is pretty easy to place on SMD boards as well.I start a lot of custom projects based on one of these designs:

I have been assuming that your boards are not available in the UK at a reasonable price. Am I correct?...R
They are available at a price in the UK. (fairly expensive about 60 to 70).Much cheaper from China if you are prepared to wait.
QuoteI liked the duemilanove. Uno added some features that have really justfield their cost.Where do you buy your boards? I can get a good Uno for around $6 dollars

I have one. I thought it was going to be the best thing since sliced bread. But I was disillusioned very quickly. IMHO the Arduino folk made a complete mess of it by making the Linux side subservient to the Leonardo side. Jeez, it doesn't even have a spare HardwareSerial port.
I drooled over a Tre when i first read about them. still not 100% sure what about them failed.
I think my dream board would be some sort of Rpi, with 5V logic levels, and tons of I/O. then i would just have to figure out how to program it
that's a lot of Arduino's! I don't reember how many i have, but no where near that many.some UNO's, MEGA 2560's, Micro's, and an Esplora (I was curious).~Travis
you blew up your programming port? you didn't let the smoke out did you? if you did, i hope you captured it to put it back in. as it says in the signature line of @TomGeorge~Travis
Why would I do that? It's much more fun to try to figure out how to program my arduino without using the programming port! Besides, capturing the smoke might prove somewhat problematic As for getting it back in my board, well no one less than the mighty Rocket (Racoon) could do that!

Once it's out, forget the board. Just inhale...
