If your cutting MFC, wether it is MDF or chipboard core you will need a saw with a scribe cutting blade, and if cutting chipboard you will get through blades pretty quick. MDF core is better for saw blades and router cutters.
 
In all honesty though, if you are serious about cutting kitchen doors, not only will you need a decent panel saw, but also an edge bander to dress your edge's. Iron on edging wont last, and will take more time than what it's worth. If space is an issue, how about a wall saw?
 
With regards to drilling the hinge holes, most pillar drills above the budget machines will do. Some company's sell dedicated drilling machines/jigs for this purpose. Winzer wurth used to sell a machine, hafele sell a jig for 35mm hinge holes.

Erm, I wouldn't expect to be able to get a clean cut in MFC from a hand held circular saw, but I may be wrong.

I plan to buy a mobile edge bander, you can also mount them in a table. will do abs and pvc. £1600 has anyone used one??
 
I read some where, maybe this forum that someone was using a TS 55 to cut mfc with good results due to the splinter guard on the guide rail.
