Thank you all for the valuable feedback. I know it's difficult to give feedback based on pictures and having first hand experience with the machines would help, but not being in the States I have access to different machines (and manufacturers...and most important of all ... PRICES)

Yeh...the base / design looks nice on #1. However more than 1 guy said that the mounts look pretty crappy...and the price is the biggest of them all.
The thing about being upgradeable is also true for #3. I wouldn't think twice about buying #3 if it also had the linear gripper (not sure at this point how important that is ... I'll have to dig some more to find out
Thanks for the feedback so far...keep it coming. If somebody (by chance) had access to any of those machines ... please take the time and post as there's no replacement for "first hand experience".
