Something to consider:
Machines restrict your range of motion. You are going to have less restriction on range of motion with dumbbells. Generally this means that machines encourage good form. With dumbbells you will have to focus on form because there is no machine to do it for you.
Dumbells are "heavier" than machines, why ?
because dumbells work on the balance and not only the weight like machines.
