have all the problems been solved with the new Bernina 780? i remember talk of either the 630 or the 730 having overheating problems. i think it was the 630. i was offered a demo 730 or a new 780. i'm leaning towards a 730(if it does not have the overheating problem). i'd like to hear all pros & cons on both. i'm looking for a hassle free machine that does a magnificent straight stitch.

Be care with the new 7 series (780 etc). I tested this machine at 3 or 4 different dealers and had the same problem - the tension side stitching was horrible. Once the dealer adjusted the tension it sewed just fine. Each stitch had to be adjusted before it would stitch properly. After test driving this machine I decided I could find a machine that actually worked as it was supposed to. I may get the 580
