Hm, ok, thanks. I guess I'll wait for it to happen again, since I've only been using it for a couple weeks. Fortunately I live close to their HQ so I won't have to ship it.

I'm about to drop $600 on a 103D. Does anyone think the next generation (113) is coming anytime soon? If it has a chance to be out within the next 6-8 months, I may just wait.
