I got the new cricut E2 last night!
Yes you are seeing it right there is no play for the overlays! And can take both cartridges the regular and Imagine. This machine cuts only. It does not do what the Imagine does which is prints and cuts. The machine is touch screen. They also have plans of releasing a wireless adapter so you can link to your computer without having those horrible cords.
Also it has a light and we have been told that it will hold any form of jell pen! Like Heck YES!!
