Which Should You Buy?

The difference between the 780 and the E310/E320 is that the Explorian has a more bare-bones interface and slightly weaker motors.

Additionally, the E310 has a shorter standard warranty and smaller container than the 780 (at 5 years) while the E320 comes with the standard 7-year warranty and 64 oz low profile container.

If you're single, living an apartment, or sure you're only going to be blending for yourself, I would for sure pick the Explorian E310 over the 780.

Even though it has a lower amount of horsepower, it's still more than enough to make all the great Vitamix staples: Smoothies, soups, nice cream, etc.

At the time of writing this, I also found the price difference between the 780 and E310 to be pretty substantial.

So even with the shorter warranty, I think the E310 is a better choice unless you're going to be blending for a lot of people and need the 64 oz container.
