Welcome to The Router Forums!
I think the Ryobi kit you picked up is an excellent starter kit. A functional hands on unit is the best way I can think of to help anyone consider the long list of features and specifications that separate the hundreds of different machines out there from one another. Discovering which of those features make a difference to you and which don't is an important part of making wise decisions on where to upgrade and where not to.
