Can’t go wrong with either one. If I were making the purchase, I’d go for the traditional plunge Makita. I find a plunge router works better for me when handheld. Being able to plunge into cuts like mortises is a good feature.

I have a Bosch motor mounted under my router table.

Edit: just noticed the Bosch is listed as a plunge router. That wasn’t obvious from the photo.
