Along with the 60D/600D decision comes the lens decision. I have a two lenses for my 350D - the 18-55 that came with it, and a Sigma 18-125, neither of which have IS. So I could get a new body and continue to use those lenses, or get a new lens with the new body, since the extra cost of a kit over the body only is half of what the lenses cost alone.

The 60D and 600D are available body only, or with 18-55 IS, or with 18-135 IS. The 60D is also available with 17-85 IS USM. Now the 17-85 IS USM costs as much, if not more that the 18-135: is it worth it? I'm not a frequent lens-changer; I prefer so-called 'super-zooms', but in this megapixel range, where further zooming can be done later on the PC, is there any reason to have a heavier super-zoom?

Which brings me back to the 60D vs. 600D debate: do either, or both, have digital zoom?

For a difference about $200 (not counting rebate). I definitely will vote for 60D. The following four items will make it worth to spend $200: 1. Much better hand grip (a lot more comfortable in the hand) 2. Penta prism ( brighter image in the viewfinder) 3. extra control wheel at the back ( a lot easier to set function). 4. LCD panel on top ( a lot easier to set and know the camera setting). For people that do not want to change the lens most of the time, 15-85mm will be a good choice or for people that hardly uses long lens, 17-40 f4.0 L lens  (27 to 66mm 35mm equilvalent) will be a good alternative.

Definitely the 60d.  Love the articulated screen.  Amazin how useful it is for event photography.  Something my 7d cannot do.  THE 60d also fits my hand better, although that would be more an individual choice.
