First, unless you NEED to move it up and down stairs or to jobsites regularly, move past the portable saws and on to either a contractor saw (open stand with motor hanging out the back) or a cabinet saw (enclosed stand with motor inside).
If you’re willing to put in some elbow grease look to the used market for a cabinet saw. Any of these can have a mobile base added.
As far as what to look for, the fence is key on a table saw. Dont fret though you can upgrade a fence if you find a good deal on a saw (not on a portable saw though). If you’re stuck on a portable I’d say the fence is the biggest deciding factor and the dewalts seem to be liked. I can’t comment on them though for lack of hands on experience
