There are some things still that a punch is better for IMHO: punching after stamping a sentiment to get it lined up just right (I know folks use adhesives to keep their dies in place, but it is so much simpler to just flip the punch over and line it up) and for multiples of things it is faster to hand punch rather than make several passes through with the machine (of course, I don't have anything electronic so that may not be as valid....perhaps you can set it up to cut several of the same on one pass), I also like the way I can alter things by re-punching or can save paper by only punching the half I need (also possible with die cutting, but not as simply).
They are a big pain for shipping though as they weigh a ton and of course the storage is an issue!
