If you have no investment in the cartridges and other stuff with the Cricut sell it. I have both machines. My cricuit is older and I do have some cartridges so I will keep it but the Silhouette is fantastic. Cricuit does have some cartridges that cover proprietary items (Disney, etc). I love my Silhouette and use it every day if I have time to make cards. The details that the silhouette cut are so worth it and Cricut can't match in my opinion. I got mine during a sale period on Jessica Sprague website. That was cheapest I had seen it and I would have probably gotten it without the sale. Sales are run on the Silhouette site also.
