VitaMix Blender, is it worth it?

Apples and oranges - a basic understanding of what horsepower actually is should make it obvious what the difference is between a table saw and a blender. My dad's 6000 lb pickup truck has a 350 horsepower gas engine. Yet the 40,000 lb tractor trailer he drives only has 300 horsepower... me'thinks you don't know much about horsepower - the vitamix can maintain a steady 2+ horsepower output and it only uses ~1400 watts (1390) - torque is another matter entirely...
