Lathe Choice

>Thinking about acquiring a new lathe, probably something in the $1500 - $2500 price range. Would like something with electronic variable speed and a good reputation. Have seen several that are available, powermatic 3520b (would have likely purchased the one for sale recently on this site but a family emergency prevented me from pursuing), Jet, Nova, Laguna, etc. Would just like some opinions on the model you have and pros/cons. I am a hobbiest that is interested in turning spindles for some flat projects and making bowls for fun.
Thanks,
David
