curious how many demo or try out tech before spending the cash? do you absolutely insist on it (maybe been stung before?) or just want to try out of curiosity? how many just buy it whatever and hope all goes well? personally, i never tryout or demo as i know Apple don't release trash (even if next year's model trounces this years). If i want some tech i'll buy the newest and latest as i know for this point in time it's their best on the market. my only big indecision this time around is colour. pics online aren't the same as seeing in the flesh. i didnt fall in love with the gold option until i actually handled one a week or 2 back.
