Comparison of ATmel chips

I’ve got a few projects I’m working on thinking about that just don’t make sense with an arduino, both for size and cost reasons.  This post was originally going to be about how to program and ATtiny with the arduino IDE (don’t worry, I’ll get to this soon).  As I was writing it, I started comparing chips and realized the distinctions weren’t as cut and dry as I thought.  So instead, this post will be a comparison of some of the popular Atmel chips: the ATmega328 used in the Arduino Uno, the ATmega2560 used in the Arduino Mega, the ATtiny84, ATtiny85, and ATtiny2313.
