Here's a can of worms....
There are many good methods of recording a few tracks. You've mentioned several good ones. Ultimately, it is a matter of which unit has a feature list that most closely matches your needs. How many tracks do you need to record? Do you need a drum / bass machine built-in? What about effects?
You should have an in-depth discussion with somebody who knows all of the details of each of the pieces you are considering and can help you make an educated decision. I encourage you to call your Sweetwater sales engineer for more information. We have gone through in-depth training on all of the gear you mentioned above and are in a unique position to help you out.
