    Its a grand by time add shipping and a spindle.

    Low Z length, low rigidity means fine for as vendor described cutting shapes out of sheet wood, nothiing thick or hard though.

    Laptop with softwre be great if its licenced Mach3, not so great if its Whing Ding Happy Cutter software.

    1000 Pounds is a lot to spend on a grainy phone pic and sketchy description.

    Funny enough I looked at that when it was sitting at 400 & thought who would spend that sort of money on a machine with so little detail & one crappy photo.
    So what's changed your mind? You were obviously happy to spend that sort of money on it originally if that's where you set your limit. Personally I wouldn't pay anywhere near that for a machine unless I knew a lot more about it, how old is it, what motors are fitted, what control system it uses stuff like that. You can't see any real detail from that picture & I don't see a manufacturers name.
    Really you have to decide how much you need a machine just now & go from there.
