I have both and for different reasons and each are awesome saws.  If I could only do one now, I'd get the 576xp.  It is going to be a saw you'll have for a long time and love to run.  I think it's one of the best pro all-around saws on the market now.  The 562xp is one of my favorites because it reminds me of a little hot rod and is a perfect firewood cutter, back up climbing saw for the bigger limbs etc. and a great limber.  When you port it, man, (wolf whistle here)!  Either decision is solid.  But, I'm an addict and think that if I have one saw I need them all...

I would get the 562 first, and then wait for the replacement for the 576 (if I don't need the saw yet)....

Something in the 70cc + class that is based on the 560 design, usually called 572xp when discussed.
