Best (?) Rapid Machine?

I teach in the Engineering Technology Department of a small Community College. We are in the process of selecting an RP machine for teaching and research applications. We will also support an active CAD/CAM maching center with a large and diverse local customer base. Which system will provide the most versatility for us or "best bang for our bucks"? I am looking at FDM and SLA technology. Am I overlooking something? I am interested in comments from the group who are actually using the equipment, pros and cons and suggestions. Obviously money is a consideration, but we want a machine which will provide "form, fit" and as much "function" as the technology will provide.

Thanks in advance for any and all input!
