Have you heard of the Fiskar's Fuse?
It's the latest die cutting machine available, not only does it die cut but it Letter Presses too.
Here's a demonstration video of the machine:
It's a really versatile machine and has a 12" cutting area and will cut any other make of die.
If you happen to have a fuse or are thinking of buying one then there's a great competition to win some extras here :

I've had my machine for a while and absolutely love it. It will cut so much, drinks cans, fabric (including stretchy), leather, chipboard, mountboard, felt, corrugated cardboard, cork etc.
Do pop along to a demonstration and try the machine for yourself.
