Default Mini Elliptical?

Hey there! I am new here! I will post some more info about my in the intro section later. I have treadmill but its so damn boring (I use JM workout DVDS) so I have been researching ellipticals for a change. I have since found two mini ones which I am interested in one has a handle bar the other does not. I just wanted some input to see peoples reviews on them. Sturdy? Cheap?
Thank you!
I can not post links yet but if you look them up on walmart you will see the 2!

My advice is stay far away. Ellipticals are generally one of the best things for your knees EXCEPT if you have one with a short stride, then they can be very bad for your knees. Any elliptical you get should have at least a 16" stride, possibly more if you are tall or have long legs. A mini elliptical looks like a disaster waiting to happen.
