My 12" has laser line...I actually don't like it as it only comes on when I start the saw. Generally, I bring the blade down, line it up over where I want to cut and then turn it on. I might be odd man out but it's what I got used to with my 10" and RAS that I've had forever... I will admit that it takes a bit longer on bevel cuts. Besides, I'd rather not move the wood with one hand...ya never know...
