Sautée Magnetically: Induction Cooktops

A few years ago, my married friends moved into a loft in Downtown LA that was 95% super swank and 5% kinda crummy. The crummy part is in regards to the kitchen--something they planned on remodeling to the hilt as they are both cooking enthusiasts. However, their evil HOA president recently vetoed their request to install a gas cooktop. Since they are a bit biased about electric cooktops ("It just doesn't HEAT right!"), I'm wondering if this could be a solution to their problem: Induction Glass Ceramic Cooktops from Viking.

According to the product specs, this cooktop uses a magnetic field to heat up cookware and toots that it's "extremely efficient." But my question is: has anyone gotten one of these yet, and is it comparable to a gas cooktop?
