A plunge saw is a great tool but a circular saw is much more versatile. Most new circular saws will run on tracks plus they can be used to cut free hand accurately and can do things like drop cuts that you could never do with a plunge saw. Added to that you can buy a very good circular saw for the price of a very cheap plunge saw.
I second this. Love my track saw, and have some useful accessories, but for ripping timber, freehand cuts, and cross cuts on timber, a circular saw is simply better suited.
A track saw is really for cutting sheet material when it needs to be accurate and you don’t have a table saw, or if you need to cut in situ.
