I recommenced you look for a machine that at least has an automatic thread cutter and a USB port.

Go to a dealer and test them out and see what you like!
This is very good advice. If you want versatility, I agree that you have to spend at least $1,000. Most people who start smaller than that soon finding themselves wishing they had invested a few hundred more for a machine with more than one hoop, font variety, etc.

I'd recommend saving up for one if you have to.
