Resurrecting this zombie of a thread!
I finally bit the bullet and picked up a VitaMix blender a few days ago. I used it for the first time today and I have to say it's the best $300 I've spent in ages. I wish I'd done it sooner.
I don't have a Vitamix, but my Blendtec, purchased 3 years ago, is awesome. I don't think you could go wrong with either one.
I tried telling people how great of an investment it is - to which I'm met with your typical "It's only expensive because of the brand status associated with it. People buy it to fit in." While there are certainly tons of overpriced products out there, the chief among which are the Beats by Dr. Dre headphones, the Blendtec and Vitamix are more along the lines of Bose headphones: expensive because of top-notch quality.1
