Alot will come down to how much space you have for the machine in your shop, yes it’s nice to have a wide jointer but an eight inch is usually sufficient for most projects and there are other tools for flattening table tops.
Now six inch jointers on the other hand, well I don’t like those, they aren’t as easy to use and you can do less with them.

As for planers, wider is always better :P
