You will get a split of opinions on this so you will just have to make the best call for your woodworking style and process. I work with predominately rough lumber, so I use the heck out of both of these machines. What I would do is is buy the jointer, and see if I could scrape together an extra $150 and buy a used lunchbox planer that could get me by for a year while I save for the stationary machine. You should be able to get all of your money back on the planer when you buy the new one.
