I think this is sound advice. It definitely seems fun being part of the initial wave of owners, but it's also nice to have a backlog of threads to sift through so you can fully weigh the pros and cons.

But then I'm sure I'll watch a demo in the next couple of days and get antsy. I've already added and removed it from my Guitar Center cart twice!
