Blendtec vs. Vitamix

The title says it all pretty much. I'm looking for a new blender- something which would better facilitate making smoothings, sorbets, and soups- particularly for raw foods.

They seem comperably priced, and both have sites which are fairly useless when trying to be objective. I'm looking at versatility (can it replace my current old-fashioned Osterizer?), I'm looking at longevity, I'm looking at ease of cleaning, and anything else I might not have thought of.

So- any thoughts on suggestions on these? Is there another which I should be considering as well?

3 Ingredient pumpkin spice cake

1 box of Duncan Hines Cake Mix (you can use any mix really. This is just the one I prefer)
1 15oz can of pumpkin
And some vanilla extract (I did not measure my vanilla. I just gave it the once around and it turned out fine).

Combine the Ingredients. The Mixture will be thick, do not add water. or Oil and whatever liquid you think it could use.
350 degrees for 22-25 minutes.

Once it cools, you can either add frosting or sprinkle some cinnamon. Side note: Usually I put the cinnamon in before you bake it so it really gives it a great flavor.

My omni friends ate it up and it's been a hit at every dinner/party/social gathering that I've brought it too.

And it's super easy.

I did find this recipe off a website, however I modified it a bit.
