is there anything different between the Arduino Uno R3 on your site ? 



and SparkFun's Arduino Uno R3 ? 



The price gap seems significant

Hi lyncas,


The only difference is that the board Sparkfun sells is made in Italy, while the one I'm selling is made in China (also, the silkscreen on the "official" Arduino board says "Made in Italy"). Other than that, they are identical (the Arduino design is open source). The boards made in Italy are manufactured by the creators of Arduino, so buying the "official" Arduino boards supports the people behind Arduino, but it's twice the price. Normally I'm all for supporting the original designers, but the boards made in Italy are priced so high, I couldn't stock them even if I wanted too..
