    +1 on this. I like the D handle. And the PC can grow with you.

    My second recommendation would be to just quit over thinking it, and buy a very basic router off craigslist (brand doesnt matter). My first router was an old craftsman that was given to me... it worked, and I made many great projects with it. Given you have little $ into it that way, you will learn what features you DO want then be more deliberate on your second router purchase. Sell the one you bought, if you are even a little bit patient you may even make a few $ on the CL purchase.

    Just a thought...
