I love this cutting machine. I have the Cricut, the Silhoutte, and the Big Shot, all of which have their stong points, and maybe I love this one the most because it is the newest but it offers things the others don't:
It cuts wherever you want, offers a decent range of sizes, can be used with small scraps of paper, and can be done right where you are sitting without a lot of space required. It also cuts very detailed images without tearing the paper or leaving parts of the image uncut, even Bazzill cardstock. I also love the fact that it doesn't require a plug to run. Finally, Making Memories has created some beautiful images and each card contains oodles of them without costing a fortune. Two thumbs up!
