I forgot that I had post in here, sorry for the lack of follow up.
The only reason why I asked about the polar alignment is that I observed someone using this mount and all night long he was making adjustments to find objects after using goto. He said that the scope was "roughly polar aligned" and the mount had no 2-3 star realignment features.
I found this quite annoying since I might not be able to always get an accurate polar alignment in the home I'll be living in in a few years. I'll be rolling the mount out of a garage like I do now and currently I've only had to do a very rough polar aligment and 2-3 star alignment to be up and running without a lot of fuss. I didn't mean to get this into a Gemini vs. AP discussion, since there are other options available and I don't know what I'll buy in 3-4 years
