I have both electric and air tools. If I am going to drill a hole I prefer using a electric drill over a air powered one. I agree with both HG and oldred, electric tools are bulkier but to use air tools one needs a good air compressor. Electric tools are cheaper and can do almost everything air powered tools do but somethings need air power. There are even somethings only electric tools can do, I wouldn't want to cut a piece of pipe with a air powered cut off, a portaband or a sawzall would be much more efficient. On the other hand I wouldn't want to use a belt sander to sand filler on my car, a airboard would be much better.
