Which double stroller do you think is best for 2 children of different ages?

I personally think you're insane for even considering spending that much on a stroller. ANY stroller. At least ones that aren't gold plated and diamond studded.
I'f you have a toddler and a newborn, I would suggest a sit'n'stand stroller.
I have one very similar to this one:
It folds up small for easy transportation and storage, comes with an attachment for the carseat (for new borns) and as soon as baby can hold up his/her neck, they can go right in the front seat (with a 5 point strap). The toddler has a seat in the back with a 3 point strap and can choose to either sit on the seat, or stand on the ledge that is there for that purpose (with a strap behind for safety). There's plenty of storage in the basket and, if you only happen to take one child with you, you can use the entire back of the stroller which gives you LOTS of room.
Not to mention that this stroller is very sturdy. I've had mine for about 2 years already and it's in great shape. And I have abused that thing like you wouldn't believe :P
The ONLY drawback that I have found in any way is that this stroller can be a little difficult to maneuver around corners, but I think that's the case with any longer stroller.
Seriously though...you do NOT need a $500 or $1100 stroller. Save the money to spend on something MUCH more worthwhile. Don't forget, unless you continue having kids, you'll only be using the stroller for 3-4 years from the time your youngest is born, only really exclusively for the first 2 years tops, then part time at best.
