ETX-125PE or ETX LS?

I'm fairly new to the scene here but I've been doing some research and narrowed down my search to ETX-125PE or ETX LS. I know the LS hasn't come out yet but sure does seem interesting. the 125PE is on sale and has gotten good reviews from what I've read. Does it make sense to wait for the LS?

Only if you want that specific auto alignment feature and a slightly larger scope. You don't get a Mak, though, and you drop down to a single arm mount instead of a fork mount. Is it worth it? You'll have to make that call.
