I just got off the phone with Demo Support. I was told that I can use all the dies EXCEPT the Pennant and Baskets & Blooms on page 29 of the mini. I really want that Top Note Bigz die and she told me I can use it in my old, original Sizzix machine. I sure hope she's right!! I just can't possibly afford the Big Shot now, unless I splurge and don't get anything else from the mini. I figure it's better to get a whole bunch of stuff from the mini- stamps, flurries, ribbons, and a die or two that I can let customers know can be used in the older machines since I know most of my customers do have them.
Having said that, after reading all the wonderful info here I am really thinking I want a Big Shot! Oh, what's a girl to do?!
