I really did search the forums and the Cricut website but I did not get many clear answers on what the differences in the two machines are. I think the Expression has the simple dials which some people like and I think I would too. But can someone please tell me what other differences there are in the two machines? I called Michaels and Hobby Lobby and neither carry just the Expression anymore. Found some on Ebay but not sure that is a good thing.
