They make a relatively expensive clothes rack.
Any machine is better than no machine . . . if you actually use it.
Perhaps invest in a set of (much less expensive) resistance bands and see if you can commit to working out with them. If the commitment / habit persists, then think about buying a large, heavy, bulky, expensive machine.
Otherwise, if you have your heart set on a large, heavy, bulky, expensive machine without knowing whether or not you'll actually commit to it, I suggest you buy a used one off of Kijiji or Craig's List (etc.) from one of the other countless people who bought one brand new and then decided to sell it because they couldn't commit to it.
Personally you would be better off buying a full set of dumbbells (or those new dial a weight ones) and a treadmill or elliptical. I bought a nice treadmill because I like to run and do not want to run too far from home (children) nor do I like running in the snow. I then started buying dumbbells. 5lbs, 10lbs, 25lbs, and now 35lbs as my strength improved. I feel dumbbells improve your target muscle group plus all of the extra muscles around to help stabilize your arm, leg, etc. Machines target one muscle and do not allow for the various supporting muscles to improve.
By buying dumbbells and only the ones you need you save money or at least space out your investment. If you stop lifting you do not have a $2K clothes rack that nobody will buy off of you. Since I started seriously lifting and running again this January I lost only 10lbs however I dropped two waist sizes. If you want I will share my dumbbell routine on Google Docs.
I prefer simplicity in gym equipment. Free weights, dumbbells, heavy bag, pull-up bar, etc. I just don't see much benefit in big, complex machines to simulate lifting heavy stuff ... especially when its probably cheaper to actually lift heavy stuff.
If it were me I would get bored after awhile; that is why such machines litter Craigslist.
After years of spectacularly mediocre gains on gym machines I switched to free weights and found them to be so much more challenging (mastery of form, esp as weights go up) and you can use them in infinitely more variations than machines.
And after seeing what it's done to me, in terms of size, speed, health and even reflexes I still wonder why there's no line to use the gym squat rack.
It's a fountain of youth.
I don't doubt or dispute that free weights are better than machines when it comes to developing good muscle definition and the like, based on what I have read so far. I'd like to get there, but I have had two different pro trainers in my distant past that due to some difficulty with balance and weak strength that I should start out on machines to improve my form before moving on to the free weights. As for motivation; it could be a problem for sure, but I see it as easier to overcome than my current obstacles at the moment of having no way to get to a gym on my own or anyone to go with.
When you are a beginner simply use lighter weights and learn the form that way. Once I can do 3 set of 15 reps on one weight I move up to the next weight dumbbell then drop my reps to somewhere around 6. This way I am maximizing my weight resistance and keeping good form.
For the price of a fancy machine you can get some dumbbells, then a bench.
Youtube is full of videos on how to properly do any sort of exercise. If I used the excuse I had no one to go with or learn from (I have no money for a trainer) I would never have started, as I have always worked out alone with no help from anyone.
Beat me to it, yes, Youtube is awash with some weird stuff and like anything you have to discriminate.
