Kitchen aid Heavy Duty (5qt Bowl-lift) or Kitchen aid 600 series (6qt Bowl-lift)

I am contemplating purchasing either mixer, however I am just wondering whether the extra one quart will be that drastic of a difference when it comes to making bread? Overall the wattage of the motors seems quite similar (475 vs 575 watt) and booth mixers feature the "spiral" dough hook. The price difference is quite drastic though while through recent discounts, the 5qt HD model is priced around 199 after rebate, while the latter is still in the 380-450$-ish range?
