I was all excited to buy the Jet Black version, but why is Apple forcing you to upgrade to 128GB for that one? Is it me, or is that just a bit sleazy? They figure it will be a hot color (something they realized after discontinuing it, I guess?) so now they are essentially charging more for it?
Honestly, I would totally a buy a new MBP right now if it were not for the price. I am in disbelief at how expensive they are given the minor improvements YoY, and it's amazing the number of people who defend Apple's practices. I think if the same 13" laptop were $1999, some of them would still support Apple.
Think about how often you see people with an iPhone or a MacBook.
Now think about how often you see someone with an Apple Watch.
I'm sure Apple decided well in advance that -- to preserve their reputation -- they would give the AW experiment at least two "runs," and possibly three. But I can guarantee you the product has not done as well as expected. I would be very surprised if there is a fourth series, and would not be shocked if they discontinue it next year.
Until they convince people of why they need both a phone and a watch, it will not be a success.
