Undecided, but leaning toward a used Pro.
I would like a Star Wars, but I’m not ready yet. After initially owning several LEs and Premiums as this concept began, I have changed my thoughts. I first looked at it as Premium/LE all the way unless I can find a good reason. More recently, I think Pro all the way unless I can find a compelling reason to upgrade.
Here are my two main reasons:
1. Costs have risen to quite a bit in the last few year. New and used Pros retain a higher percentage of their value on resale (less money lost).
2. The Premium/LEs sometimes have additional features that seem cool, but aren’t all that fun.
We’ve all seen the rumors that some designers design the Pro first and then add for the LE (John Borg). Conversely, some design the LE first and remove stuff for the Pro (Steve Ritchie). I’m not sure I’ve ever read or heard one of them say that. Disagreement seems to be pretty even with Pinside collectors. Just look at the replies in this thread.
