と今までのは何だったんだwっていうくらい変わって最後のはAK240に当てた感じで、個人的にも縁がないと思うんでいいんですけど、Ponoキラー的なところだとGW128位な感じなんでしょうかね。個人的にはXにするかXDにするかで若干XDに傾いてるって感じでしょうか。まあポタでfemt clockはどうかな(落ち着くまでに30分使わないと…みたいな)と思わなくもないのですが、割引率でもまあお得な気がするし…。

ところで、これは個人的にはウェルカムではあるんですが、今ままでのキャンペーンで支払ったお金とかそういうのはどうなるんでしょうかね。一旦全部払い戻して新しくやり直すのかどうするのかちょっと気になるところです。旧モデルを作ることはないようなので返ってくるんだろうなあー。そしたらXDいくんだけど…。
