I already had an EV2 system, so I decided to upgrade starting with the EV3 brick itself. It's a wise choice. My EV2 sensors and motors work perfectly with the new brick, and the Mindstorms programming system offers the same block-based interface used in previous versions. Note that you don't have to buy the brick separately if you already have an EV3 kit.
Mindstorms is a learning experience that can help both adults and kids learn about mechanical design, programming, planning, collaboration, and robotics. The only downside is that Mindstorms is addictive!
