Get the Big Shot. It seems to be on sale for $59.99 in a lot of places. It makes me wonder if they are clearanceing them out and are coming out with a 12 incher, or something new.
Watch a You tube video on the Big Shot. It cuts almost all other dies and embossing folders. I'd go with it. I love mine. Michael's has had the embossing folders on sale for 50% off.
