I'll assume for a moment that you don't work for the company that produces LPKF Plotters.

The question that you raise is how many boards could I order from an external source with the money that would be required to purchase the LPKF plotter? For the average hobbyist which frequents these forums, that's a lot of prototype boards!

Nice suggestion, but I don't think it's cost effective. It would be better to do the typical photo-resist and etch process at home than to purchase this machine if time is really that much of a problem, imho.
