I would say it all depends on what you want to spend, and if you want lithium batteries or NiCad. I have had a milwaukee 14.4 for about five years now and one of the batteries is just now starting to give out(I have used it almost everyday doing everything from installing cabinets to building decks). I love it and would buy one again in a heartbeat. They can now be found for $140 with two batteries and a charger. If you want to go the lithium route, if you type in ridgid CPO under yahoo search. They have a ridgid Reconditioned lithium 18v drill with two batteries and a charger for $125. My boss has several of these and i dont have one complaint about them. They are good drills. I would say that these 18v lithium drills are lighter than my old milwaukee.
I personally have been eyeing the reconditioned milwaukee 18v drill and impact combo for $200 on the milwaukee cpo site. I use my pocket hole jig all the time and im tired of switching out bits, and im a diehard fan of Milwaukee tools.
