From PP's run down of the specs, I would get the 60d, I reckon.
Really? Why? Honest question.
I find the extra screen on my D80 really useful, which the 60D has.
Bigger buffer (just because)
Shutter Speed (shooting with a 1.8, easily takes you to high shutter speeds in relatively bright light. Nice to have some headroom.
Higher flash sync speed - again nice to have some headroom.
I think on another post as well you mention that the 650d has a touchscreen. I reckon it's completely pointless on a camera, unless you really have made the camera so small that you can't fit any buttons on (or put such a big screen on). The screen gets smeary, you can't change settings by touch (button press & twizzle of command dial while not even looking away from viewfinder), it seems like technology for the sake of it (wrong application of a technology, perhaps) and I've never found it to be an advantage on any camera that I have used it on. The only thing I can think it would be good for is swiping through pics when reviewing them, but this doesn't seem like reason enough to add it.
Also - 2 command dials on the 60D, although not sure about the buttons running along the top in front of the second display; doesn't look very ergonomic.
Grip looks a bit small on the 650D
Oh, swivel screen on the 60D
Apart from that,
