What is the difference?? Other than the 12 inch size on Cameo...

Basically the size is the difference. It uses the same software and works basically the same. Loading the paper is different, on the original you have to manually turn a knob on the side of the machine whereas the cameo has a push button control button. There is no way to stop the original once it starts cutting and the cameo has a pause button with the option of stopping the project. So far those are the differences I have found. I had the original Silhouette ( it sits housed in my closet waiting for me to sell it) and once I quit being intimidated by it found it a wonderful tool. My Silhouette has only got about 6 months of actual running time on it but it is 7 or so years old. Hope that helps!

Outsidechic; just wondering...
I have an original Sil and use print and cut. I design in the software and have my image print to my printer and then load to my Sil to cut. Is there something else you are meaning?

I use the print and cut on the Original but it doesn't work consistently for me.....maybe 1 out 10 tries. The optical eye isn't as a good as on the SD or the cameo. Maybe that's what "outsidechic" is referring to. But I don't use the feature much anyway.
I would only upgrade to the Cameo for the cutting size (12x12)
