This is a tough call, and impossible to say without understanding what else will be in the shed, and what you intend to build. Having said all that, in a space that small, I would probably lean toward the portable saw. There may be times when you want to pull the saw completely out of the shed. If the weather is decent this is an easy task with a portable, and a bear with a contractor saw. That looks like a decent portable saw. I would suggest that you take a look at the Bosch as well. My father-in-law has the Bosch, and it has plenty of power, good fence for a saw in that class, and the stand was solid and easy to collapse. I would get a nice thin kerf combo blade and that saw should do anything you want it to do, and perform quite well.
