Welcome to the Quilting Board!
I was lucky enough to buy a used Bernina 730E with 6 hrs. on it ! I love it ! But, and there's usually a but (lol) I wished it had a built in walking foot. I think the presser feet, diff size throat plates are expensive, but still love a Bernina !
I have a Bernina 440QE with BRS and I love it. The machine I used before I got it was a featherweight and I thought I would still use it once in a while. I have not touched it in about 4 years.
If you can't afford the model with the built in walking foot get a Bernina walking foot for your model right away. They have the best walking foot I have ever used. I wouldn't be without it for my Bernina 640. I just bought the embroidery module for mine...another new toy to play with!

I have the 440 great machine. Sure it is alot like the 1 you are looking at
About 15 years ago I invested in a good machine. I bought a Husquavarna quilter and like it. But now that I am older, I really would like to have a machine that has a needle threader and knee pressure foot lift. I suggest that you go someplace that you can test drive a few machines.
I have an almost new Bernina 780 with only a few hours of usage for sale. I also have another top-of-the-line machine, but only need one. Getting to old (85) to do so much sewing and embroidery anymore. The 780 is Bernina'a latest model embroidery and sewing machine with many great features. You can find it on the Berninausa.com website in the 7 series category. It gives all the feature this machine has. A picture is available on request and for more information please contact me at 360 424-5229 (Washington state).
I have the aurora 630.... She is called Tina and after my daughters she is the woman I love most!!!!!!!!!
