Not a bad idea.
When you find out the shortcomings of the HF model then you will know better what you'd like.
I got an HF sliding compound miter saw as a gift.
Half the price, it works fine for my occasional use but I'm waiting for it to fail catastrophically and take off an arm or something with that huge blade.
But there's not much a scroll saw can do to harm its operator.
