The 34-444 is a very capable machine. I wouldn’t think you’d outgrow it anytime soon. Certainly not any faster than you’d outgrow a 4512. But as said before, $400 is a hefty price for a saw with a mediocre fence.
I might pay $200-250 with the intention of immediately installing a Delta T2 fence. They typically run $150-200, are of great quality, and would be a direct bolt-on to a 34-444.
You’d have $400-450 sunk into the machine at that point, but the saw would last for decades. And IMO, you’d be hard pressed to find anything better for $450.
