"It depends". What are you going to use it for, how big is your space, how comfortable are you being millwright, programmer, electrician/electronics tech, what's your spending limit, etc?
My process was to read this board and others that talked about machines I was considering. Completely (it was easier a few years ago). Anecdotal, I know, but it gave me a very good sense of both machines and companies.
I bought a Tormach 1100.
I have never regretted buying the best quality, biggest, most capable tool I could afford (somehow, my projects never get smaller. I have never regretted purchasing from the company with the best possible reputation. Tormach's support and customer service have been superb.
Incidentally. A quick test I have used (and did in this case): what's the availability on the used market? Lots to choose from, or gone in a flash? Never did find a used Tormach for sale (it does happen, now and again- but they don't stay on the market long).
Ultimately, I think you're asking for an answer to an imponderable- only you can make the decision.
