I think you better run the numbers to see if it's cost effective or not to 
buy one right now--they're damn expensive and sure to go down in price and 
up in quality. Meanwhile you've saved a ton of $$$$ at the front end. I did 
and just couldn't justify buying one now for big bucks, then to find out 
next year they're cheaper and much improved--and NOBODY wants last year's 
It's kind like buying the latest and greatest digital camera. The next model 
comes out before the ink is dry on the ads for the one you just bought. It's 
a real sickening feeling unless you are some kind of pro and use the hell 
outa it.
I remember when we used to bemoan Detroit's planned obsolescence. The 
digital boys/ girls have set new records for that program. I for one am no 
going to get sucked up in it. 
'Just my opinion.
