If you decide that you are going to bottle, I recommend reusing glass beer bottles. Even thought the plastic is somewhat easier to cap, plastic is a porous material that will not keep your beer as fresh as glass. It is also harder to clean and maintain than glass. If the issue is chipping bottles then I would suggest just using enough force to cap the beer but not chip the glass. If the cap wont twist when turned then you have a seal.
But the most important thing to remember when homebrewing is to use what's best for you. There will always be differing opinions on any matter so try both ways and weight the pros and cons for yourself.
