Vitamix models... How do you choose?

I hear ya, Mike, and was there for years. I've been preparing gourmet meals without a vitamix for 25 years, and have never had a dish suffer from lack of the fancier toy. I wanted it for the green smoothies and whole food juices... but only 9 days after buying the 6300, I would be happy to never see another smoothe. I have used the vitamix from 1-4x/day every day since the purchase, in part because I want to try everything. There's no doubt it's a great machine, but I agree that it's not an essential kitchen tool. I haven't decided whether to keep or return.

Vitamix models... How do you choose?

I have been shopping around for a vitamix, and am struggling with finding a good comparison chart of all the models. Costco sells the 5200 with two pitchers for $500 and the 6300 with one pitcher for approximately the same price. My brother bought the new 750- but I don't seem much difference between that and the cheaper 6300, except pitcher shape/size. There are so many models with minor differences Is there truly much difference in performance or ease of removing food, cleaning between a $400 model and a $650 model? How important/useful are the presets? What do you have and love? What do you use your vitamix for, besides the obvious smoothies? I appreciate any recommendations!
