What type of projects do you plan to make? If you are making jewelry boxes, the tabletop might be all you need. If you are making conference tables, you will need something much larger. I think you will quickly be frustrated with a bench top model for anything but the smallest projects. I would recommend looking for a decent used 6” jointer, they come up frequently on CL. A jointer with a spiral cutter head is nice, but a straight knife head can be tuned to work well also.
