Basically, a flattop gives you more flexibility to customize, IMO.
If you're happy with your setup, then enjoy it, and don't worry about what's popular or currently the 'in' thing.
I built mine with a flattop because I like the look and as was stated, you can add a carry handle to it if the need/desire arises.
If you want to try a flattop, just get a second upper.
