..I think you got a super deal and it shows that your are making good use of it.
Personally I never considered the combo style machines. Being a tool maker all my life they just didn't strike me as an option.
But the hobbiest picture is totally different. With such you have a compact setup.
Many will say that constantly changing setups is their biggest down fall. But one only has to consider that because the machine is designed for the hobbiest, quick turn around to machine a part should not be the main concern. Relaxation and enjoyment is what it is all about.
There is an added advantage to owning and using such a machine as your picture shows if you let the machine and project "talk to you".
These machines can lead you toward good project planning and maximizing each setup. Rather than jumping from machine to machine as those who have stand alone machines might be wont to do.
