Well, I went digging a bit deeper on the Parallax website, and I found
the SX Tech Tool Kit
(http://www.parallax.com/detail.asp?product_id=45180). At $229.99 it's a
bit more than I wanted to spend. It comes with the SXKey, a dev board,
some chips, the "Programming the SX Microcontroller" book, and some
other stuff. Not too bad I guess. Anyone have any opinions on the SXKey
versus the SXDev?

I pretty much plan on programming in assembler, so I don't really care
about not being able to use another compiler. How difficult was it to
switch from PIC to SX programmingwise?

Thanks,

Josh
