Default Weber One-Touch Platinum - Current Model Unpopular?

I so rarely see the current Weber One-Touch Platinum models around that I'm wondering if they sell many of them.

The price is pretty ambitious for a kettle, and I suppose the split table design may not be as desirable as the single, large table on the Performer.

Anybody have a current, dual table Platinum? If so, do you like it?

To me the split table design is the only flaw it has. I've only ever seen one in person, and I am glad I have the old school platinum compared to it, soley because of the split table.

I looked at them in depth, but I use big cutting boards and serving trays.
I just felt for me personally the split table would of ended up in a drop of a meal sooner or later.
So they were checked off my list. For those who are less messy than me it could work.. but not for me.

I am happy with my older model Platinum. I also prefer a single table to the split. I am curious how well they are selling.

Right now it looks like Performers are on sale quite a few places and are only about 60/80 dollars more than a Platinum. Why get the Platinum?
