If there is anyone in MN or near MN that is looking for this machine, there is a used one at Just Sew Studio in St. Cloud, MN. Their wWebsite is www.justsewstudio.com
I was at the St. Cloud Quilt Show yesterday and they were a Vendor there and I got a flyer from them that listed pre-owned machines and that one is listed at $849. That is all I kn w about it. I don't know if it is the Bernina Aurora 440 QE and I don't know if it has the Bernina Stitch Regulator on it. I also received a 10% off coupon to be used towards any pre-owned machine so if anyone is interested in it, pm me and I will send you that coupon. It sounds like a good price to me--but I don't know any details about it or how old it is. I have a Bernina Aurora 440 QE and absolutely love it. Never plan to get anything different. And I know the price tag is high on the new ones.
