A new sewing machine

I've been considering buying a new sewing machine recently and consequently have been looking at what's on offer for quilters and the reveiws available.  Now I've always loved my little Janome and it's served me well but I would like a machine with a bigger throat space and maybe a few extras.  This led me to be tempted by a Bernina 750QE. The features that are especially luring me with this machine are the stitch regulator, for free motion quilting, the larger bobbin and the bobbin alarm which let's you know when it's running low on thread. 

Now these machines do not come cheap, and I would prefer to stay with the Janome brand but their upper end machines ( with the larger throat space) seem to be aimed more at those wishing to do machine embroidery, something I'm not likely to use much.

I have a dilemma, I know that Bernina had a very good reputation in the past but have had problems with their more advanced machines recently, but the 750QE does have the features I would love, but ......... can I trust them......... would I love it like my janome ........... can a stitcher switch!!

What are your thoughts on this?  I would love to hear them.
