Where to buy Picaxe?

There seam to be an echo of "where do I buy Picaxe", especially from newbees from the US.

Well - let´s make some web-shops happy out there, I entered picaxe.co.uk (http://www.rev-ed.co.uk/picaxe/), looked under "distributors" and found this most likely not too recently updated list:

here is a site with some picaxe stuff, but it isnt the same as what is shown here, but it is from the US, and i noticed he has an ebay store as well... http://www.phanderson.com/picaxe/


$29 for sparfun, as opposed to the UK based retail... tech supplies, which is better, coming with cord, software, documentation, and microcontroller, cheers mate!

 

Anything that can happen, will.

Sparkfun sells the cable seperately. Sparkfun is a better deal if you are using the seriel cable, but the USB cable is like $25.
It seems to me, that everybody uses Picaxe... But are there no alternatives that are just as good, which can be purchased in Denmark...? Or is Picaxe just tthe thing to have...?

may i get the information that how to get picax in india

is there is any alternative of picaxe ?

thank u

I have to give a thumbs up to sparkfun, they've been great with their speed in deliviering and seem pretty reasonable with the prices.

Took 3 days with the cheap snailmail delivery. 

Plus they accept paypal and seem to be able to deliver out of the country.... 

I wish they had more types of ic's but mouser seems to be able to cover that. 

For Sparkfun, the shipping says it takes 2 weeks, is that the maximum, does it actually, can anyone relate, I live on the east coast.

East coast of the US? There's no way it'd take 2 weeks. I've ordered from them many times, it always ships out the same day, and with USPS Priority Mail shipping I have it 2 days later. I'm in Knoxville, TN, so also East Coast US.
