After reading through the various posts, I am convinced that I need to purchase a Vario grinder. Now the question is which one: Vario or Vario-W. Is the W worth the extra $100, and if so, why?

I think I would be lost without the load cell in the Vario-W. Being able to grind 18.7 grams every time without a single bit of extra effort has spoiled me rotten and made a believer out of me.
