Made 5000, now what?

Other than the cameo being able to cut up to 12 inches? Will I still get the basic stuff done with either. Software differences? What will Cameo do that Portrait cannot do?

Software is the same. I think the cutting size is the only difference.

Everything is the same except the size.

Ok, I may have talked myself into the Portrait then. I had a different thread last night asking a couple of ?? I have a 12 in CE if I need something big. I most likely can make the smaller size work for me!!
OH YEAH, can I also save stuff from the computer to an SD card to take with me to my scrap house outside or is that only on the Cameo?

if i were you..i'd go for the Cameo...reasons: if you want to cut certain files, you can't get them very big. even though you have CE, you can't cut any of the files obviously, on the Cameo. If you have room, why not the Cameo?

I believe the Portrait does not have an SD slot

Yes, there is a difference between the two.
Silhouette Cameo is larger, cuts 12 inches, weights 6.5 lbs, has a SD Card Slot and a LCD Display. Cost $229.99.
Silhouette Portrait is smaller, cuts 8 inches, weights 3.5 lbs. Does "NOT" have a SD Card Slot or LCD Display. Cost $179.99.

You can also get the Silgouette Design Studio for 40% off if you use the code "CRAFT". I ordered it this morning. I like that it allows you to use .svg. files.
I just got the Cameo a few days ago, upgraded from the Silhouette SD. If you have the extra money, I would go ahead and get the Cameo. that way, no regrets. If you are wondering now which one to get, you will probably look back and wish that you had gone ahead with the bigger one. I have a Cricut Imagine, but I use my Silhouette most of the time.
