the first one's maximum capacity is 60mm thick so i recommend going for the 2nd one to allow for a bit of headroom. also, if you want your machines to last, never buy GMC. but if you're on a budget then its understandable, but i would save up a bit more and buy a good quality, longer lasting machine if i were you

how much would a good one cost, without making me go broke?

well i just bought the 2nd one in this catalogue (BP-300). not bad for $570AUS. not the best, but way better than GMC and it will cut mahogany no worries. if thats too expensive than have a look at the 1st one in that catalogue, i'm not too sure of the quality - it might be no better than a GMC

Any bandsaw will cut thru mahogany. Mahogany is not a very hardwood. height and thought depth are the important concerns when choosing a band saw(i am a cabinetbuilder for 10yrs+)
Do they sell delta or powermatic in AU? The $500(amer.$$) delta is not bad. I used to own it before upgrading to a serious saw.
