One thing that caught my eye was the diferent shape of the makita. Does that make for better handling aka feel etc in the hands?

I really like the Makita.  I saw that HD was renting them, and figured that they had to hold up.  The slim, in-line design is really nice for working in some thick hedges I have, and is well balanced.  I thought that I would have noticed more of a difference in balance between the two saws, but did not in this application.

I have been told we are not bringing it in for the foreseeable future. . .  the marketing guys don't see a big enough market to justify it. 
Electric saws have gotten a bad rap from the cheap ones sold at home centers.  A lot of people are also afraid that they will cut the cord, even though they don't do this with electric circular saws, reciprocating saws, etc. 

This saw has a lot more power than the battery saws, and sells for much less, due to the cost of the batteries.  Positioned in-between the cheap electrics, and the more expensive STIHL, Husqvarna, and Makita models, we will probably see it sell well in more upscale home centers/hardware stores, on Amazon.com, etc.
