Topic tags/keywords: question lathe turning

I was tossing up between this and the Jet Midi Lathe this one is on special so I want to ask you which one would be better at this point of time.

The one you show has lots to offer for the price, I like the idea of the swivel head which gives a few more options. I would prefer this one over the Jet if just starting out.
