Grizzy G0584 or G0462 or Other?

>Hi all.
I have never turned anything on a lathe, I've 'turned' a couple of tiny things on a drill press (cause I didn't have a lathe,) so my question is....
If I rise....(or as those on the flat side say, take the plunge down the slippery slope) to turning, Are the GO584 or G0462 lathes, which are within my budget, viable? Alternative ideas sought and welcome.
I'm thinking I just want to turn a few table legs...but I'm guessing that that's all anyone buying their first lathe thinks.....
I just do this as a hobby/obsession etc. Would one of the above allow me to turn a table leg and/or delve deeper into this unknown region of horizontal spinning things> :)
Thanks
Bob
