I would do both—Únless you really see the DW744 as a major hinderance – work with it and get the other tools.

I have the Dewalt benchtop planer 735 – it works really well, but is INCREDIBLY LOUD! In retrospect I wish I had gotten either a grizzly 15 inch “basic” planer or a used floor standing model.

That is just me though – I would lean toward adding tools/capabilities to my shop before replacing/upgrading the old tools.
