I think you're referring to the BX-24 family. I've used them, didn't like them.....uses a big, clunky version of Visual Basic. Communication support not as slick as stamp family.
They do run fairly fast and have lots of memory.

Yea, I'm thinking about using BECAUSE they use "a big, clunky version of Visual Basic". I love VB cause i'm much to lazy to program in C and I don't have time to learn Spin
I also like them cause I have one and because they multi task

Spin isn't that much different from basic. But if you're sure you don't want to learn spin, there's SX/B on th SX family of chips. Those have interrupts, so you can 'multi-task.'
Programming today is a race between software engineers striving to build bigger and better idiot-proof programs, and the Universe trying to produce bigger and better idiots. So far, the Universe is winning.
