Manual Pasta Maker

I can finally get one of this. Now that I am getting one, I don't really know which one I wanted. Do I go for the price or how they are made? Do I have enough time to make the pasta we needed? Or am I wasting money if I go with the expensive one?

I don't really want to buy a very expensive one, then finding out that buying pasta from the store is better. It seems that with manual pasta maker you can only make certain pasta, not like the electric competitive. However, I am looking at this a great investment that I can pass to my daughter.

Atlas Original Pasta Mchine
The images I include here is what most appealing to me. Both have a great reviews but too pricey for my The top image is Imperia Pasta Maker and Chromium plated steel. The second one is Atlas Original Italian Pasta Machine, this one is stainless steel. And yes, extra attachment is sold separately. Both pasta maker is over $85, plus the extra attachment to make different kind of pasta. Both came with spaghetti and linguine/fettuccine. Maybe I should settle for the cheap one, then I can buy all the attachment I like and comes out to be the same price.

Decisions, I don't like making them, it's too hard.
