Arduino Kits Comparison

Hi there, I'm new in this forum and I want to get started on electronics, but I'm confused.

Which one of this kits should I get:

http://www.crcibernetica.com/arduino-starter-kit/

http://www.crcibernetica.com/sparkfun-inventors-kit-v3-1/

Money is not the problem if the price is between $100 - $130

What I'm looking for is a kit with enough parts and It'll be better if the guide has theory about electronics. I don't know which one to use because I like both, but you're the experts so I need some help.

I have notice that the Arduino UNO in the Starter Kit is PTH and the Sparkfun's Arduino UNO is SMD. I don't know if that is important.

Thank you very much :)

Good point, I would go with this one because you can replace the micro controller when you damage it ;) Order some extra Atmega328P-PU, about $4.00 each.

Thank you! Anyone else?

Can someone else help me, please? Thanks
