Seriously thinking about a new laser. Wondering if anyone can give me any idea what a 100 - 120 watt laser might cost, or what kind of deals have been offered to you. If you don't want to post here maybe you could send me a private PM.

You have an NBM show coming up in a couple of weeks at Arlington. There are usually show specials. https://thenbmshow.com/arlington-2015/schedule

Chinese or Western?

If Chinese, $5k is about the right range... for Western, figure on 10x that amount at $50k+.

Well for reference, I just picked up my second Chinese machine, 80watt RECI, 450mm * 650mm bed size for a little under $3,000 and it will be about $1,000 to get it imported.

I would also suggest looking at a Kern system, not sure if they'll be at the show but definitely a company and product worth looking into.

Kern's are about $100,000 last time I checked (two weeks ago ;) ).

True for a full bed system, but the micro lineup can hit the 150 watts with a 48x24 bed for under 85k and even less if you go with a smaller bed size.

Would be worth a call to see if they're at the show or if there are any specials coming up, ask for Keith and he will be very helpful.
