Not really. It only takes a quick glance on something like DPReview and the differences become glaringly obvious. You were the one that started the thread thus:
"I couldn't find a single reason as to why she should get the 60D over the T2i or the T3i"
There are quite a few if you bother to look!
I'm going to have to agree with him--your comment was pretty arrogant and rude. It's not like the 60D is a phenomenal leap beyond the capabilities of the t3i or even the t2i. Beyond the articulating screen, the poly body (no mag frame so -1), top-LCD and adjusted button-placement, it has few real improvements over what the t3i offers. The improved burst rate isn't really important considering it has the same tracking capabilities of the t2i/t3i... which isn't that great to start with. Larger buffer? I wouldn't use one of these for action/tracking photography anyhow. The 60D doesn't even have micro-adjustment! That's a deal-breaker in my mind.
