I really can't give any advice without know more about what you want to do. Are you looking for a home sewing/embroidery machine or entry-level multi-needle? (I'm assuming that you're not looking for an industrial multi-head for your first machine.) How complex are the designs you want to do? What's the maximum design size? How many copies of each design do you plan on making? What kind of fabric/items will you be embroidering on? Is this for personal use or will you be selling things? Combined sewing/embroider machines run from about $1,000 to $15,000. Multi-needle embroidery machines start at $10,000. Software runs from $150 (basic Embird) to $10,000 (or more?) for commercial systems. Even with money being no object, it doesn't make sense to spend more than you need to for what you want to do.
