I have an opportunity to buy a fast track interface with m powered for $50 from a friend later this week, and I was wondering what the pros and cons were to that vs the avid fast track unit with pro tools express. I can get the avid for about the same price, maybe a little bit more. Ultimately I want the better recording software. What is different between the two? My biggest concerns have to do with the amount of tracks available for recording and any limits with plug in usage.

Pro Tools Express is absolute shit. You're limited to 8 tracks and stock plugins.

M-Powered is going to be miles better as the only major limitation is that you need to use an M-Audio interface (for the most part). I highly recommend upgrading to the full version of Pro Tools as M-Powered is kinda buggy from time to time.

That's what I was kinda thinking. And I do intend to upgrade to the full pro tools eventually, but for now I just want to learn the program and do small demos and such. Thanks so much!
