Of course you could go all the way and get something black and shiny. It starts with a R.

They had one on display in KC at the Symposium this summer.  In talking to the PM folks this is the next in line replacement for the 3520B.  It is not intended to move people like myself that have the 3520B to this one.  More an enhancement to that offering in the market. Once stocks of the "b" are gone I believe this will be the only choice you will not have the b and c. to choose from.

I like most of the upgrades but they are not enough to make me replace my b with it.  Nor is it intended to.

You're right Len
The B's are no longer being stocked and this is the replacement. These things don't tend to be redesigned very often, I think this model will be around for several years as long as it sells well enough. The problem is that with the "improvements" over the B, it will most likely be more expensive and you don't have the option of choosing between the two.
