When you say resaw capacity, just how much capacity? That answer will define what size saw you need. As for a new saw, try to buy something that you can see in person first. The fences are different on each of the three machines you listed. Then based on your resaw needs, you can see physically which saw will work best for you. Look for good blades guides. Personally I prefer roller guides which the Laguna doesn’t have. I also prefer a lot of light. Yes it can be added but if it comes with a decent one to begin with, it saves cost. Having lots of horsepower really helps with resin especially when cutting exotic hardwoods. The thicker the wood, the more ponies are needed to cut. So the resaw question really needs to be answered. Lastly, get good blades, they make a huge difference on any saw.
