I'm not sure how small you need. Lots of companies make good portable saws. For benchtop type saws, Dewalt's probably the top pick. For jobsite saws (a bit bigger then benchtop saws, but on handy stands that allow you to fold them up and wheel them around) Ridgid, Bosch, Dewalt, Craftsman, Porter Cable, Jet, and even Sawstop have decent machines. Ridgid and Bosch seem to consistently get the best reviews. After much research, I ended up buying the Ridgid about 4 years ago, and I love it. It's passed the nickle test, and though that's not really a true indicator of performance, at least it shows that the vibrations are minor. And the (very minor) annoyances I have with my machine all seem to have been fixed with the newest model.
