So just got back from the Michigan Ave store in Chicago. I have a space black SS ordered as well as a space grey sports The store was crowded! The buzz was around the watches. They look way better in person!! I am a little torn as although I ordered the Black SS the regular SS looks amazing and seems more versatile as far as adapting to different bands. The link band was lighter than it looks but still seemed high quality. The sports band was amazingly nice!!! Did not feel cheap at all. Also, tried on the space grey sports with black band it looked great and felt great. I tried the watches not running demos and there was no significant lag. A lady next to me who was older and wearing lots of diamond bling was complaining to the apple guy about how she wanted the gold edition and was upset she couldn't buy one right there and take it home today!! After seeing the enthusiasm in the store I think apple has another big hit on their hands(pun intended). My final thoughts is I probably will keep my order in for the black SS although I ordered a SS with white band just in case I change my mind in the next few days. PS checked out the new macbook. its basically feels like an iPad with a keyboard. I was surprised the gold color was nicer than i thought it would be. The space grey was very cool. I already have an 11 inch 2010 macbook air so I am not sure I need another mini laptop.
