|Laube's are my go to clipper even now. I can't clip for long with nerve damage and arthritis but I can still use my laube's as needed for my dogs or if I Had to groom a coated dog. I also have a Wahl Arco SE but they aren't something I'd recommend for a full groom, I use them for feet and clipping manes on my horses. Andes are likely going to be your best bet, I'd spend the extra for these if you can. The one's a step below tend to heat up a bit faster which isn't a good thing if you're just learning.
As far as a powerhouse clipper Oster's are still my favorite, but even before my hands gave up on me they were too big and vibrated too much.
Honest opinion of someone who groomed most of my life is to spend as much as you can possibly afford if you plan on grooming your dog for the rest of his life. Yes the higher end clippers are pricey but the detachable blades, and durability will help you a Lot in the long run. Guide combs on a cheap clipper are never going to do as good of a job. Add to that in the long run you'll spend more having to continue to replace the cheaper clippers because the motor isn't up to doing full grooms.
