I was so excited when my E2 arrived on Monday ! I love the new features on it. Love the screen. This machine is very easy to work with. I like the fact I can now buy some of the Imagine carts, and use them in the E2. I don't own an Imagine but I do like the carts they made for it. It was easy to set up, I took it out of the box, plugged it in and started cutting right away ! I did get to do the update. Works well with my Gypsy, even though I'm still learning how to use the G. lol PC did a great job on this machine ! I'll post some projects from the pre-loaded carts as soon as I can.
