This new machine cuts 12x12, BUT, it also prints! From what I've read, it will work with all existing carts, and also have new color/pattern carts to go with it and bring images to life. Hmm....sounds intriguing, right? I'm not sure I want to deal with replacing ink carts, along with blades, buying new papers, etc... The MSRP? It's right around where I guessed it would be: $599.99! It will apparently be offered on HSN first, which will make it more affordable (since I'm assuming they'll have it on flex-pay). Hmm....the price would have to come down ALOT.
Here's some great information that Sarah Pink Cricut shared this morning: http://www.pinkcricut.com/2010/07/cricut-imagine-announce/
For now, I will stick with my Expression. After all, I love picking out the colors and layering images myself. I must admit that I am drooling over the new machine though. Note to self: must plant a whole orchard of money trees....~Hoppy Crafting!
