The one thing I might add to what Dave has said already is that you need to be aware of you clear finish. If you use something like varnish it will yellow your tint a little. If you use a water bourne finish like General Finishes High Performance it won't change your color tint much at all.
I think that's a wise move. Portables are great for construction when you need to move a saw from site to site...they can even be accurate, but they give up a lot when substituted for a full size stationary saw. The landing zone in front of the blade is vastly larger on a full size saw, not to mention the torque, noise differences, mass, upgradability, reliability, and acceptance of accessories.
