I just got the Acosteel one from Warehouse for 0 bucks it works great though taglatelli cutter doesn't cut right through every time, 95% though which is OK with me. At that price it is well worth it.

As for cookbook hey I just use google heaps of Ideas and recipes there I have made heaps of stuffed pasta from that which we really like. And totally transforms Lasagne I do mix my dough in the food processor now as otherwise its a bit messy kneading it on the bench like the chefs do.

OOOOOOOOOppppppppppps thats 60 bucks missed the key stroke.

Marcato Atlas or Imperia if you are serious about making good pasta. The cheap crappy ones dont roll the dough properly.

The one I got from Warehouse rolls the dough really well no issue at all if there was a critisism I could make its the cutting which is a little inacurate though still well usable. Certainly only takes a few minutes to make enough pasta for a large family meal.

I got a made in china machine off Trademe years ago, brilliant, cheap as chips, never failed.

i got mine from stevens. 150bucks worth for 50 bucks in the sales. if you are near albany/browns bay stevens there ALWAYS have a sale. mine has angel hair cutter attachment and the fat pasta what ever that is. simple recipe! i use 1 cup of flour, (put about 1/3 to the side for kneading) make a well, add salt , a little oil and an egg then mix and knead using the extra flour when necessary. i think the trick is one egg makes one portion. so if you double the recipe, cut it into two when you are rolling and cutting it.
