Starter Lathe Suggestions

>I'm just starting out in turning. I've been using a mini lathe but now I want to get into larger items like bowls. I'm not sure what to look for in used machines or new ones. I've seen some models with horse power ranging from 3/4 HP to 2HP running on 110 volt. I don't currently have a 220V line in my garage but if it is needed I could add an outlet. I recently saw a Delta #46-450 that had been rebuilt including new bearings and 2 HP motor but I'm not sure if it's worth the $1000 price tag. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
