Milwaukee Fuel, and as Paul said don't overlook the M12 stuff. You will need M18 for rough-in work and driving lags, but M12 is great for almost everything else.

The power tool I use more than anything else is the M12 2401-20 screwdriver, it has a 1/4" quick release only (no chuck) which keeps it nice and light and fast for driving any kind of fastener. There is a Fuel version 2402-20 but I haven't switched because some people say the clutch isn't as sensitive. I use the clutch a lot for rack assembly and even rack-ear assembly, where it needs to be quite sensitive.

This is worth repeating. You will use the 18v Fuel for your heavy lifting, but the M12 stuff you will use ALL THE TIME. The drill is the perfect size for poking four holes into studs to hang a TV. The impact driver gets used all the time. I only ended up with the multi-tool because it was $20 more when I got the kit of 3. It is awesome for retroing and cutting sheetrock. When I used to use a jab saw or utility knife to go along or across a stud, it was annoying and took forever. The multi-tool is the solution.

The M18 Fuel drill has a charger for it's own batteries plus the M12 batteries as well.

I have no doubt the 20v DeWalt does a good job. They lost me when my 18v system, initially solid, would require batteries replaced every year or so. Replaced a few transmissions and switches. They squeezed me out.
There is no truth anymore. Only assertions. The internet world has no interest in truth, only vindication for preconceived assumptions.
