  1. I’ve got to get my hands on this new toy. I’m going for the higher end model but I think it is great that they finally have a cheaper one at a lower price point.

    • I am a couple of models behind the curve at the moment so will be upgrading soon. Still undecided on whether to go for the black or silver edition. Let me know what you think once you have had a chance to test it out.
