It looks like the OP has been settled amicably but I have this 12" jointer /planer in my high school shop and feel much as the guy in this video. 
Its a good compromise that provides a nice wide surface for face jointing which is important for flattening boards.  Grizzley tools has copied it for a few bucks less, so that may be a decent way to go too.  If you had a 24' surface sander you might be able to avoid a planer altogether.

IN full disclosure We have a dedicated 20" planer and 6" jointer as well so our combo unit is primarily used for face jointing so the planer feature doesn't get used much but it works very well.  The guard is great for surfaces IMO but it can be a bit balky for edge jointing.
