Another Lathe question

>I thought I had decided on a Jet Mini. My local dealer doesn't have the mini, but can order it.
He does have a Delta 14 x 40 iron bed (46-715). Its on sale for $609 and comes with a free starter set of Delta turning tools (8 tools).
The headstock is threaded 1" 8 and can swivel to the front or other end.
Is there any reason not to get the Delta?
Does anyone have experience with it?
