filmscanners: Silerfast questions

Sometimes I feel as thick as a whale omelet. I am
considering a few different flatbed scannes for use
for scanning 120 film (6x6). I was thinking that
Silverfast *might* be something I want to add to the
equation. I looked at their website and noticed they
charge vastly different prices depending on which
scanner one owns. Can someone explain to me why this
is, other than that they can?

I am looking at the Epson 1640 SU Photo, the Epson
Expression 1680, Agfa Arcus T1200, and Microtek 8700.
I am concerned with Epson's 1640 really only resolving
800 dpi in practice (or so I have read) and would hope
the more expensive models in the above list, though
mostly rated at 1200, would result in better scans. I
note the Agfa and Microtek have glass-free scanning
for transparencies, so that *seems* a plus. In fact,
the Microtek and Agfa seem like the same scanner. 

I am purely a hobbyist, but darn it, I'd like to be
able to make scans suitable for big prints. That's why
I'm shooting 6x6 now. I have no interest in a
flatbed's capabilities with 35, as I am quite pleased
with my Scan Elite, so that isn't a factor.

Does anyone have any food for my thoughts?
