Congratulations man. You avoided a HUGE problem. I just replaced a Craftsman 21830 direct drive portable that I bought 12 years ago. Back then, it was $400 and it rated up there with DeWalt as far as compact portables, but you are SO limited as far as what you can do with one without modifications. Yes, they are light, but as the other guys have said, the miter slot is a non-standard size, the saw is NOISY, the fence is total junk, the miter gauge is not even close to accurate and because of the light weight, you can't cut much of anything without a helper of some sort because the saw will be in danger of tipping over. They are also notoriously underpowered compared to full size saws. Add to that the fact that a direct drive replacement motor is around $250, and you can see that they really aren't worth it. I have pretty much completely stopped shopping for most tools based solely on price. I'm not going to go out and drop $3,500 on a new Unisaw or anything, but I am trying to buy quality in all of my new tools even if I have to wait. Anyway, congrats on the purchase, you'll LOVE it!
