As much as I'm not a fan of the "nose only a mother could love" on the newest EMD power, I also must admit that the SD70ACe is definitely growing on me. While I have always thought of EMD as being really good at aesthetics, the boxy notch-nose doesn't seem to quite fit.

What do you think of the SD70ACe?

I'm a bit late to the party but I had to chip in. As a return favor, I invite you all to drop by to weigh in on the latest reader poll, "How would you spend $5 Mil on the Colorado Railroad Museum?"  
I basically agree with you, Kevin, but the notch nose to me is a throwback to the 50s-70s spartan cabs with the high short hood and the low short hood each allowing a low window/door for the crew. Brings me back and loans the nice solid power of EMD's heyday.

I like the engine myself, however it is nozier then the ES44 acs and DCs, as well as not venalated. There for, I like GE better.

I do not care for it, which is tough being an EMD fan, but the GE units are nice.

While its not the best looking unit EMD has ever made its overall appearance is still better than GE current model, in my own personal opinion.
