I wanted an arduino uno for a school science project, and to be honest I don't have much idea about this whole thing. Luckily I have a few friends as my project partners and they know robotics. I searched for online shops and came across an electronic component supplier in Kerala. The provide arduino along with their driver software. So that is an advantage right? They have it in their product page, take a look https://www.tomsonelectronics.com/products/arduino-uno-clone and advice.
Not really. The Arduino IDE includes the drivers for the official boards and faithful clones. For boards that use other USB-serial chips you just need to get the driver from the chip manufacturer's website. The fact that store can't even get the photo the right way around doesn't inspire confidence so I probably wouldn't mess with their driver anyway.
buy the hardware anywhere and find the software on the internet for free.
