Default Which cutting machine?

I want to get a cutting machine. I wanted the cricut explore, but it doesn't look like you can get it in Canada. I want something that I can use to create images/words etc, but be able to use SVG files as well. I need it to be able to cut card stock & vinyl. Suggestions?

Or a KNK Zing! I love mine. And it comes with a really good design software - Make the Cut.

I highly recommend a Silhouette Cameo! They get excellent reviews.

Another Silhouette Cameo lover here. I also have the Brother Scan and cut but dont use ut as much as the Cameo. I love giving these machines away.
Blessings

I'm a silhouette supporter. I do have a cricut and a slice but the silhouette is the one you want. If you're a card maker the portrait. If you're a scrapper.... the cameo. Just my lil' 'ol opinion.
