Newbie to cooking - portable induction cooktop or portable butane cooktop?

Greetings everyone! I'm just starting my foray into the culinary world so please be gentle.

I currently live in a rental with a budget electric stovetop and it has been hit and miss so far with cooking (uneven heating pattern-more towards one side, unable to gauge level of heating, etc) compared to when I used a gas stove. I am looking at getting a portable cooktop for better control and to develop my skills.

Currently I am looking at either one of these:
Iwatani 35F

Max Burton 6000

Would I be at a disadvantage busting my chops (pun intended) on an induction unit?

THANKS!!!
