I received my two launchpads last friday. These are rev 1.5 while my "old" board is rev 1.4. I noticed they not only changed the board, but also the shipped MSP430s. IIRC the 1.4 shipped with a 2231 and a 2452, while the new boards ship with a 2452 and a 2553

I have bad news from Turkey. The only site that is selling msp430 launchpads is closing. Thank god i had bought that last two extra boxes..

That just means you might have an opportunity to become a distributor :D
