Embedded Systems Dev Kit
I ran most of my embedded systems projects on my overclocked quad-core in the lab. The projects grew (literally) as I added more boards, so whatever I was working on usually found a semi-permanent place on the desk next to me.
The Embedded Systems Dev Kit has everything I needed to start out and also gave me the foundation for a much larger project.
