Extruded vs Sintered base?

I know this question have been asked 1,000's of times. I am a beginner snowboarder and just bought a board that has an extruded base. Was that an awful decision? What do you guys think about extruded bases? Just want your guys opinion.

You should be fine, extruded requires less wax and is easy to repair!

I am pretty sure we all started on extruded base snowboards!
