Dan, being brand new as you say why bother with either. You ll want a router for sure. Hard to predict what direction yur new interest will take you. But with a router, you ll quickly see what its capabilities are. In the early days I had routers on hand and simply bored a hole in my outfeed table and mounted a router underneath to run what I needed and then removed it for normal use. Your going to find also that a router held in the hand will be used much more than in a table. As to your specific question: Shaper wins, no contest.
