"Consider your costs and purpose for flying. If you fly for fun and will operate on a tight budget, convert your dollars into logbook entries. Use your money to build experience and explore flying, which likely means in an affordable trainer. If you want utility out of your flying, then make an investment in your training to fly the airplane that will meet your mission. ('Mission' here means consistently and reliably getting to your destination in a variety of conditions). Utility could cost more and lengthen your training time, but that's necessary whether you choose a glass or very capable round-dial aircraft.
