Power Automate - RPA costs



Wondering if you can assist me on this, as I'm a bit confused about Microsoft Licensing and Plans and so on.


Our team needs to develop some RPA's and ideally they would run in a virtual machine with a specific user account. First question is: is it possible to run desktop RPA's in this conditions with the 40 USD/month attended plan (Per user plan)? Or would it be considered an "unattended" execution? In that case, the price escalates to 500 USD/month for five flows? 


So, in the worst case scenario (500 USD/month for 5 flows), it would cost 100 USD/flow, which seems a bit expensive for a pretty simple RPA that gathers information from the website.


I'm just confused about the total price it would cost to have 3 robots (example) working every day for 5 minutes each one. If it's 500 USD/month, it's too much and maybe not worthy. If it's 40 USD/month, its workable for us.


Thanks, any help/advise is appreciated.
