Jeff and Bruce already pointed-out that the Meade 14" is not available yet. Bruce pointed out the Fastar option on the Celestron as being a plus.

The only other advice I can give is that you should not be "first in-line" to buy a new product. Celestron had their bugs with the Nexstar GPS line. I think everything has been resolved except for the software/hardware being ~ 15° off on pointing to the first alignment star. Meade still has a way to go in ironing out the LX200GPS system. Thus, let everybody else be the beta tester and wait for their reports. At the same time, see if anybody else buys the Meade 14" and lives near you. Try to get a view before purchasing. About the only way you might be able to do a side-by-side comparison is at a large starparty some time next year.
