Only 2 problems with me doing that :

1) $150 is far too expensive for one of my projects. I am used to 
microcontrollers costing a few pounds at msot

2) I don't want a pre-built board with peripherals I don't need on it. I 
am a great believeer in actually designin the hardware to suit the 
problem I am solving
