What programmer would you recommend for a PIC 12F1571?
I will probably use this chip only once, so I don't need one with all the bells and whistles.

You can do it properly, or 'make-due' ...
Usually you can make a programmer with a few spare parts and a serial port on the PC, but the PIC requires a higher voltage than the typical 3.3V or 5V you will be working with.
You will save yourself a lot of time and parts to simply buy a pickit programmer... or if you are flexible on the MCU you need, buy an arduino. They are cheaper than an AVR or PIC when you factor in 'single project' and 'programmer'.
If you will be programming more than one MCU, splurge on an AVR or PIC programmer for your chip.

What do you mean PIC requires higher voltage?
cheers

Check to see if Pic-kit 2 will program a 12F1571 there is a stand alone program Picit2 V2.61 that has a digital analyzer etc in it which can be handy.

Thanks for your replies and I'll use a PIC-KIT-3 as Adam suggested.
In the past I have used 12F629/675 and 16F676 and programmed them with a K150 based programmer. Bit it won't work with the newer PICs that have 4digit numbers.
