That Festool track saw is a top notch track saw!, especially with the suction attachment, if you do not have the room for a table saw, it's a excellent compromise, I bought the Dewalt model track saw, mostly for cutting all my medium sized plywood boards,
Even though the Festool and Dewalt are plunge style track saws, they are not particularly the best for cutting 3/4 solid hardwood, but if you have enough clamping power, and steady with it, I'm sure you can get buy, I would highly recommend looking at some of the smaller table saws that you could incorporate into your table, and could have a removable fence, only when you want to use it, I tried cutting some 3/4 oak with my track saw, but I ended up using my General cabinet saw for all solid 3/4 hardwood, as with a brand new Forest blade, I don't need to joint any edges, it's totally perfect.
Not sure if you have the ability or not, but this would be something I recommend to people that don't have room, but have a multi-purpose table that can be used if you have the ability to modify, I have done this many times, and it's great when space is a factor.
