    I have now heard and read about the ARM processing units, an they sound awesome, but I can't find a place where I can buy one. Can anyone help me?
    The best would be if it is a webshop and is located in Europe, but elsewhere can also do it.

    What do you want to do with them? I use ARM on the .NET platform. I can buy a board for £24 + vat and absolutely NO cost for development tools.

    You can buy an embed from Cool Components or Spark Fun for about £30.

    If you just want the processors you can get them from RS or any electronic catalogue...

    Cheers Ian

    Thanks

    I am playing around with the idea of making my own robot(an advanced line following robot, with other abilities, possibly some image analyzes), so I have to have some processing power.
