impact driver or combo kit?

i have been trying to decide between m18 fuel milwaukee or dewalts lineup.I just read now milwaukee will have a "compact" line rolling out march 1st.. its pretty similar to the XR series from dewalt.. In my travels i found out that the dewalt flex torq line is better than the red shockwave bits etc and for my personal DIY and household woodworking things probably dont need a full sized m18 etc...


im trying to decide between the DCF985  impact (like that it can accept 1in bits for super tight spaces and has a push button bit ejector) and the 3 speeds for small fasteners and 3 leds $229 at home depot with charger and 2  2.0 batteries






or the DCK281D2 which is a combo kit with the DCD790 20-volt max 1/2 in. drill/driver, and DCF886 20-volt max 1/4 in. impact driver on sale for $259 for 2 tools charger and 2   2.0 batteries



i know an impact can drill etc and i do fasten more than i drill but this will be my first impact and im not sure which deal is better ... 2 tools for a lil bit more or 1 impact with more features... i will primarily be fixing DIY stuff around the house and light woodworking projects and cabinets etc birdhouses dressers etc..

yeah its basically a free drill for the price of an impact .. i just didnt know if i really need 2 tools or can basically do everything i want with just an impact.. i basically just drill pilot holes from time to time and thought maybe get the better impact etc..

i would buy this kit - comes straight with 2x lboxx 2's. bought that kit about 2 years ago (just without the lboxxes from lowes for the same price)








( i know not everyone likes bosch, more dewalt nuts here) :P :P
