Recommend a sander?

I am looking for a recommendation for a sander. I would like an "all purpose" sander for leveling filler. I have a straight line sander (air) and 6" DA. Suggestions?

I also like an air driven jitterbug for general shaping and knocking down filler. Leaves too many small circular scratches for getting into the finer grits...but I use it a lot for the early stages when you are just trying to get things into shape quickly.
