Duemilanove at RM88 is sold out. Yes sir! That is official Duemilanove from Arduino Italian team. Not Duemilanove clone nor some board with dubious manufacturing origin and not supported by H&T as well as other official Arduino distributor.
While Duemilanove is sold out, the promotion it self continues. H&T is offering Arduino Uno for the unheard price of RM98. Together with April "Free USB cable", this is indeed the cheapest Arduino in town. While stock last that is!
The purpose of "Cheapest Arduino In Town!" promotion is to highlight official Arduino product availability in Malaysia. To make a statement that buying official supported product does not break the bank. While at the same time the buyer enjoy quality product with peace of mind.
With that said, buying from official channel is a way to show appreciation and support to the Arduino team. To continue their RND and make improvement. Arduino is not just about hardware, it is also development platform that is free and open source. Believe me, the long run benefit is worth it!
