So I want to get a Vitamix

If anyboardie owns a Vitamix, I'd love to hear how you like it, which model you use and if you'd recommend it. I think I've taken my research as far as it can go for now and would love to hear some personal experience stories because I find that they really help me make decisions like this.
I got a bunch of gift cards for Christmas and I've been putting some money aside, so I think I have just about enough to start shopping. Its a big investment and I want to make sure I get the model that will best suit me. It doesn't have to be the one with the most gizmos or the highest price tag, I just want to be sure I'm making a good choice before I drop the $$$.

But I'm definitely looking at it as much more than a blender. I love to cook and the Vitamix seems like its a really versatile tool and could replace a whole bunch of other kitchen tools I have that I'm just not happy with (like a string of lousy blenders and my shitty Cuisinart food processor that never seems to do what I need it to).
If I could have one machine that works as it should and could take the place of 3-4 others, I'd be thrilled because it would really cut down on the clutter in my kitchen and I'd probably be more likely to experiment with new things knowing I've got a tool that can be an asset instead of a hindrance. That's something I'd be more than willing to spend the bucks on since it could be a worthwhile investment for me.

Definitely go with the variable speed vitamix. Being able to start low to grind up frozen fruit or apples with the skin on in a smoothie and then ramping up the speed gradually to get a good blend is so useful..
