I purchased my 80th anniversary edition G4 in October of 2011 and so far have been very pleased with it. I like some of the features this machine has such as Tech Drive, and the Micron Magic system. Below are the Pros and Cons of the G4.
Easy to use
Color is cool
Could have been sold with some of the extra attachments ie Turbo accessory, Zip Brush etc.
Could have a brighter light builb in it
Not so loud
And that's my 2 cents worth

I know from experience that some Kirby dealers did sell the Zip Brush WITH the G4 and NOT as an add-on. The dealer I worked for in the late '90's did that. I always thought that was fair. When I would 'check-in' the new vacuums as they were delivered I added the Zip Brushes to the box as I recorded the serial numbers and stamped the arrival dates on them.
But, other dealers were charging big bucks for the Zip Brush. As much as $100 I heard. That's WAY TOO MUCH!!!
I remember that sometimes my boss would knock off money if someone did not want any of the attachments. He'd bring back the attachment kits and we would part them out. I think he only did that if someone already had a G-Series vacuum and the new attachments would just be put aside anyway.
