Help! Where do I start?

I'm considering getting a serger. Well, more than considering; I've pretty much decided I need to add a serger to my collection of machines. I think it's time.

I'd like to be able to make clean, quick seams on things. I don't know that I'd use the decorative stitches on a serger (I'm not even sure what a serger's decorative stitches would look like.) because both my Babylock and Singer machines have a nice variety I can choose from. I don't sew a lot of garments currently, but I would like to get into that in the future.

I started doing some research on what to look for so I can decide what I actually need. Does anybody have any suggestions? What type of serger do you have? What do you like about it and what features could you not live without?

I can't wait to see what you decide! I just fixed a friends slipcover and the whole time kept thinking how much easier it would be with a serger!
