5dog, I was in Home Depot yesterday and they have some selection in air and electric. I have also bought a couple air DA's at NAPA with good results.
I do a lot of boat sanding -- a 33' foot sailboat with bottom paint problems gets you a lot of practice. I started with electric and its ok for small jobs but I mostly use air now. Occasionally I'll use the big 7" electric for hogging off a lot of material that will be filled and resanded.
There are some nice 6" air orbitals with a vacuum attachment, that would be the cadillac way to go....
