Here's a good question for you so.
Well nelly, I’ve never had vinyl. My friend does, I played with his equipment, but then chose to take the CDJ route as overall it was cheaper. I got my CDJs for the same price as a tech12, and music is much more affordable. For you, if you already have your turntables and serato, I would stick with it. I have a friend who swears by serato, esp if you are used to the feel of vinyl.
However if you ever want to move your decks, then CDJs are a breeze. We moved all that equipment in a 2 door Toyota echo – no probs. Door to door in under an hour, where as tables are heavy, and then you need to bring a laptop.
All in all, CDJs I find are cheaper (music wise, maintenance wise (needles, cartridges etc)), but if you really like the feel of vinyl then stick with it.
But since it seems you have both cdjs and a serato setup, why not offload one and make some cash. Or sell the tables and upgrade your cdjs, 800 mk1s are coming down in price a bit.
edit: i now see that you dont yet have CDJs.
get just one - like a 200 (with the loop feature), and that should be sweeeeeet.
