I think you first need to sit down and think about what you want to make and do with it. What will you be actually building and how often? And what other tools do you have? For example, if I didn’t need to rip smaller stock often, I would probably ditch my table saw altogether and get a track saw like the Festool. I also have a sliding compound miter saw that does most of my crosscuts and miters. I can also rip with my circular saw and clean up on my jointer. But a table saw is really hard to replace for certain things. Again, depends on what you need it for. If the portability of the smaller interests you, and you can cut dados with a router, then the dado blade thing may be a non issue. A lot of variables.
