My *current* favorite is the CERB40, but I'm almost finished with my  
personal design, which will become my new favorite.  (I know it's been  
almost 3 months(!), but quality takes time.)

* The cerb40 is good because it's small and minimal - DIP40 form factor

* My new board (The Mobb) will be good b/c it breaks out all analog  
inputs and is compatible with some well-known embedded Peripheral  

* Eric Brombaugh's board has huge potential too, since it includes an  
SD slot and a stereo audio codec.  I believe it breaks out most or all  
of the analog inputs... don't have it in front of me.

But if your friend is still unspecified, you can't go wrong with the  
STM32F4 discovery board....  it's the cheapest, most expandable, most  
compatible, etc.
