Looks like the 0899 is just a rebranded 0833p. It has the same fence and blade guard dust collection. Lots of people like the 0771z but the fence on the 0833p/0899 looks much heavier – steel tube vs the extruded aluminum rail and it has that “Unifence-like” aluminum piece. I don’t really see any difference between the 0833p and the “new” 0899 and you can still get the 0833p for $130 less. There’s no reason to jump up $500 to the 0690 for hobby work since all the above have the cabinet mounted cast iron trunnions and decent fences. If you’ll be running the thing every day then maybe the extra 1 hp and beefier iron is worth it to you but if you are just a weekend warrior then I’d recommend the 0833p while you can still get it for $1,145.

If you do go with the 0833p/0899 then I would recommend replacing the dust port that has Y coming from inside the adapter to a standard Y like this:
