    I have read the posts here on the board about comapring theses two machines, but I can't seem to find anything diffrent about the 2 of them. There is a $100 price diffrrence though.

    Any brother machine can do the disney designs and they both have the card reader and usb port. I have been watching You Tube videos on them today.

    The links are:
    Brother PE770
    http://www.allbrands.com/products/abp22854-0152.html#

    Brother PE700II
    http://www.allbrands.com/products/abp15330-0152.html

    Any ideas would be great please, and your input if you have 1 of these machine.
    Thanks, Hugs!

    It looks like on the brother website that the Brother PE700II is not availible from them any more it is an older machine.

    So the Brother PE770 must be the way to go then. :)

    Walmart has the Brother PE700 for $697.88 US and I can have it shipped to any Walmart for free.
    or
    AllBrands has it for $749 including 10 freebies, not sure how much shipping would be to Canada and then customs fees.

    What to do?

    just be aware that the disney CARDS only work on the disney machines. i'm not sure if the downloaded disney designs from the brother website are as particular.

    =) I have the 780-D and LOVE LOVE LOVE it

    My local Allbrands has a 10% discount on the web. You should check that out.

    Hopefully yours has one also.

    On The Brother website it says you can take any brother machine ant turn it into a Disney machine, with being able to use the cards. If not I think you can still download the designs and use them.

    Canada does not have an Allbrands, I would have to order from the US.

    The 770 comes with more software and believe me that is worth the extra
