As there was a topic on the mbed blog about this board, I am sure some people bought it (like me !). It might be a good idea to create a forum subtopic for LPCXpresso owners as there is a whole bunch of gizmos onboard that need to be programmed and that do not belong to the cookbook.
Sharing infos and programs among owners could be great without mixing with the general mbed thread for sake of clarity and search easyness.
Just my two cents (of euro...;-)
I've been thinking of buying one but after adding EA's shipping (€22 inside EU?!) and then VAT the price is not so great...
Yep, it's a bit pricey but when you add up all the built-in stuff and the burden of making a PCB (like BoB) and the soldering, I made the purchase.

I never really liked the whole board idea, its much cheaper to buy the components individually and solder them to little breakout boards ... and attach them to the breadboard when you need them...
Hmm... I've bought it.. It's kinda nice not to have to wait for components, and have to solder it here at home. Now I have it all connected, ready to use. The only thing I would do on a breadboard, is 8 x PCF8574 and a whole bunch of LEDs.
For now, I've already tried the joystick, the rotary switch, which I couldn't unless if i had bought it. Even the RGB LED I have tested. :-)
If you go to one of the mbed training seminars you get to take home an LPCXpresso for free I think.
Well, I'm from Denmark, so I can't really join 'em ;-)
