There are much cheaper counters on eBay the HP5328 goes for $100 more or less.

All those billions of Android phones and tablets are all Linux on Arm
if you look inside.

One other option.  What about a PicTic II?  It is basically you micro
processor option but it's less work because someone else has already
written the uP software and made a PCB..  But they cost $50 to build
and the HP5328 counter is in that same price range.
