I'm looking to buy an Arduino clone for a low cost standalone project. But the one I'm preferring (in terms of balanced cost and build quality) has an ATMega328 MC instead of the ATMega328P that's present in my original Arduino. Now, from the past I have an experience of a major 'pita' while trying to load the UNO bootloader to an ATMega328 (changing device signatures in the Arduino IDE files.)
Now will this ready Arduino with ATMega328 Microcontroller pose the same problem during programming with the IDE?
I'm finding some Chinese clones with ATMega328P, but I prefer anything else.
