I think at least 3 routers are needed for a moderately equipped shop. The palm router you mentioned, a router of about 2 hp that has both a fixed base and a plunge base and #3 a router in a table top. If you find yourself frequently using large bits you may want something larger than 2 hp. but that would be used in the table top.

My preference has been Porter Cable and their 890 series of combinations will take care of two of the above requirements. If you can't afford two large routers the motor on the 890 series can be moved from one application to the other without too much fuss.
