Anyone have any info on the sales/success of this thing, even anecdotal, “I know a guy who ordered four for his shop” stuff?

It’s the most expensive and niche/limited-appeal thing they make, so I can’t help but be curious about all that. It isn’t targeted for the weekend duffers so I doubt anyone here is looking to buy, but has anyone heard how it’s doing in real life amongst the crowd it’s supposedly made for?

I no longer run in those circles, so I would have no way of knowing like I might’ve 10 or so years ago.

I’d sure hate for this to be a replay of Phil’s ass-innovating trash can because if it is, Apple is probably out of the desktop and “pro” racket forever. If they didn’t get this one right either, after 4-6 years of design/testing, that’s gonna be a tough swallow for some.

I hope it does well. As well as can be expected for what it is, who it’s for, what it costs, etc. I have a feeling it’ll be drastically cheaper in just 10-12 months from now.
