I need a cutter that will do this...

All of these cutters can use the MTC software
Sil Cameo..........12".......$220 - $270
(there have been lots of sales recently)
Zing..................14".......$399
(includes software)
Gazelle..............12".......$419
(includes software)
Pazzles..............12".......$423
(amazon, there are other prices as well)
Lynx..................12".......$499
(without software, MTC is $59)

You will also want to check out cutting force, this will be important if you want to cut heavier materials like chip board or acrylic. The Cameo can only do thinner chipboard, the rest of the cutters have higher forces and can cut deeper. (If you are interested in the Cameo, sign up for the ohmycrafts newletter, they have codes to give you even better prices.)
In order to get feedback appropriate for you, it is better to say, "I need a cutter that will do this..." and ask for comments. You will then get feedback on what machines can or cannot cut it. For example, the Cameo can cut thinner craft foam, but not the thicker craft foam but the rest of the machines can cut the thicker foam. ~ great info from Nelda on the MTC forum - Thanks!
