Thanks for your great suggestions. I'm still looking to buy an intermediate to large sized laser. I looked at both the Kern and the Beam Dynamics systems that were suggested and was very impressed with both. Tough choices! I actually found a source for a used Beam Dynamics LMC5000 system for sale. It's a 5yr old system for less than half price with a new 250w tube! It sure sounds tempting and if anyone has any advice on buying used systems I'm listening. I understand that the new models are twice as fast but from what I understand, that wont make a difference in vector cutting. I mainly want to cut 1/2" and 1/4" acrylic as fast as possible and from what I can see any of these machines would be at the top of the list for that.
Thanks again for your input,

250 Watts? Holy cow... that'd be nice.

See what guarantees/ documentation you can get. If your 250W claps out in your first week of starting you're in major trouble.
