The T3i is very similar to the T4i except for one key difference: the touchscreen. Basically you can use the camera like an iPhone camera app with touch to focus, swipe to view images, etc. For me, going from a T1i, there are many more upgrades in the T4i that I'm psyched about like the articulating screen which the T3i has too, but the touchscreen will allow me to get more into the advanced settings. I never really found the menu system on the T1i intuitive and changing settings quickly was always a chore for me with the buttons and dial system. I'm really excited for the touchscreen in this respect. Whether it is worth it is completely a personal choice. Both are great cameras. If you want touchscreen go for the T4i. If that's not an issue, then get the T3i for less money.
OK, wait, a major edit here. Another huge difference between the T3i and the T4i is that the T4i can be bundled with the 18-135 STM lens. This is a big step up from the 18-55 lens that you would get with the T3i, or any other combination of lenses you can get with that camera. Factor that in when making the decision. You will not regret spending more for the T4i with that lens vs the T3i with an 18-55, especially if you plan to shoot ANY videos with the camera.

Also, the ability to take advantage of the STM lenses for smooth auto-focus in video makes T4i (or T5i) more compelling than T3i if you want to be able to shoot video. I own a T3i, with which I'm very happy, but I'm relegated to manual focus while shooting video, b/c auto-focus takes too long and is too choppy.

Mine (T3i) looked like new but the SD card door switch (so the camera knows when the SD card door is open) stopped working after 18 months and 92 actuations. $210 to fix. Probably just bad luck. We'll see how my new SL1 performs.
I've been following this thread for a few years hoping to trade in an old broken S2 for something worthy, but I haven't seen anything. Their refurb prices even with the loyalty discount are not that much lower than if you find a hot deal on brand new retail equivalent.
S110 can be had for <$180 with a free printer, paper, and camera case.
Anyone ever trade a 60D or 50D in? I've got a 60D with a bad upper button panel I think. Haven't checked to see what repairs would cost but I don't need much reason to swap up. Got the 60D back 9/11 and have used the heck out of it. Might be time to upgrade, but should I get the 60 fixed and peddle it on the bay or trade? Hmm
