D'oh-meant to post this here, and posted in the wrong forum.  Side effect of trying to focus with a four year old breathing down your neck I guess, anyway...My mom recently gave me her old Pfaff 7570 because I expressed and interest in doing embroidery and appliqué.  After looking at the machine, reading the manuals and looking online, as great of a machine as it is, I don't think it's going to work for what I want to use it for.  Because I have two young kids I'll primarily be using the machine to do machine appliqué and to personalize bags and shirts for them.  Everything I've found basically says it's a giant pain to try to upload internet-based appliqué designs on the Pfaff, and just looking at the Brother it looks like it's pretty user friendly for that purpose.  Also my main computer is a MacBook Pro, although I do have an old laptop I can dedicate to appliqué files if needed.  Thoughts?

I have a PE 770 and I love it!  I went with it so that I could have the larger stitch field (5"x7").  It is very user friendly.  I had no experience with machine embroidery and I was able to start stitching as soon as I had unpacked it.  Only times I have had any problems was when I was learning about stabilizers and was using the wrong weight/kind for the project.  I have done shirts, towels, bags, straps, patches, and even a quilted shooting vest! 

I can't answer anything about using it with a MacBook.  I have an HP laptop that I use to house my files.  I just use a thumb drive to transfer the designs from the computer to the machine.
