Whichever saw you decide on, go for one with cabinet mounted trunions.
IMHO, with a cabinet saw you won’t feel like you compromised later on down the line.

Choicewise, I’m in the same boat and will be upgrading early next year. With being on saw #3 now, I made an oath to myself that my next tablesaw will be my last.

I’m leaning towards the sawstop cabinet saw with 1.75HP motor. Pricey, I know, but it will definitely be the last saw I buy.

In your budget though, I’d take a long hard look at the steel city 35950. It’s listed as $999 in steel city’s current flyer.

About the power, 1.75HP is fine. Unless you’ll be using 2” stock in every project you build.
