Hardware for Arduino doesn't have any specific limit. It's just AVR processor boards with some standardization. You don't have to use the limiting programming environment, and you get to take advantage of all of the hardware pieces that fit together.

And having the environment there lets you easily get back to a running system if anything goes wrong.
