    I did a little research a while back...My advice is to get the largest most powerful you can afford....
    If you go bottom line you'll forever have someone with a project that won't fit your machine and you'll regret not getting a larger model OR trade up , trade up, trade up and loose gobbs of money you could have saved by buying the big dog up front.
    You're looking at $9000.00 at the very least.

    a model you can get for $2000.00 will at best do really cool nametags and coasters.
