Oooh... I wonder if I can convince my wife to buy me a second one. For the kids of course... :)
Just want to make sure, retail version may turn out same as the one you get from LEGO education (part #979792 - 432 pcs) for ages 8+. It comes with rechargable battert, education NXT software (#928979) and NXT resource set (#979648 - 672 pcs). Importantly it provides FLL team license. I am not sure the new cost, but we paid $280 including shipping.Microcenter also sells same product listed in this blog. I guess for home use this is good price, considering one year of shelf life or special promo.
In first line of previous comment I meant retail versionmay not turn out ......I remember reading e-mails from lat year, purchasing from LEFO education is bargain considering all construction system we get. Only drawback is instructions..
The retail set has 571 pieces and includes the NXT-G software. The $280 that you referred to is a great deal but its only available to someone who is registering an FLL team.For others the Lego Edu set goes for $250 and the resource another $60. You also have the buy the software separately.I'd personally recommend the retail kit for home use esp at $189 - (you can always buy the rechargeable battery separately.-David Levy
I just bought one off eBay, 1 DAY before you posted this!!! It cost $185 + $20 S&H!!! oh man...
