Default Good cordless drill?

Somehow I lost my trusty 18v Dewalt. Don't ask me how but after 5 years, one weekend I go to use it and it's just gone.

Unfortunately I still have the 2nd battery, charger, and some other Dewalt pieces, so I am leaning towards yellow again, but open to suggestions.

Looking at HD it doesn't seem like the Dewalt line has changed much, although their cheaper models do feel a bit cheap. I use the drill for all kinds of things from ikea furniture assembly to buffing, so overall ergonomics and weight (in addition to power of course) are important to me. I passed on the hammer functions last time because it made the drill too bulky and heavy.

Any specific recommendations on models etc? Would really rather keep it in the $100-$200 range.
