I like the cheapo Ryobi 18v stuff for most things, a decent Craig's list Tool hunt for the table saw is ideal.
Still, you can make a stand without a table saw easy, ask Home depot of Lowes to cut the main pieces and a circular saw can do the rest.
Those saws at Lowes etc are not going to be precise, less than 1/16th etc, but for most things, they should be fine.
The Ryobi stuff is cheap and they have many tools to play with.
For most casual around the home usage, they are well suited.
For tougher stuff, get a decent electric cord Cir saw etc off the CL's, you can also make a nice stand for the circular saw and DIY a table saw, or a router table or a sanding table, drill press etc etc.
Simply screw the tool onto the the table in the position you want.
