I will tell you from a service stand point, as i do not run them.
Buy the HAAS, plain and simple. We have HAAS and Hurco, and some good quality machines as well. The Hurco's are made in taiwan, uber expensive on parts, totally unreliable, and each one is wired like someone built one-offs in the back of there house. I've never had to fix ANY of the HAAS machines we have. I spend at least 10 hours per week fixing a Hurco. Granted, we have more Hurco's than HAAS. The control panel is FAR superior on the HAAS, as it is more like a std machine tool. The only thing in my mind Hurco has going for them, is the guys at the factory. They will respond to your every need. I don't know about HAAS, since I have never called them. The only thing I can say with HAAS, is watch the options, like a spindle chiller, or a decent warranty, or side mount tool changer. Once you start adding some options, you can get a good machine like an Okuma or in some cases even a Mori Seiki.
