Some points you might want to consider:
Both play a very strong game.
Snowie has better graphics but a smaller playing area than Jellyfish.
Playing a game on Jellyfish involves far less moving of the cursor and
clicking than on Snowie.
In my opinion the functionality of the Jellyfish edit position function is
better than that of Snowie.
Perhaps the most important factor to consider is whether you will eventually
wish to upgrade.
Both can be upgraded to the full bells and whistles versions, but an upgrade
to full spec Jellyfish is cheaper than the upgrade to Snowie Pro. However,
Snowie Pro has far more functionality than Jellyfish Evaluator - you get
what you pay for with the full spec versions.
