Makita blue or white

What is the difference between the blue/green color and the white on the Makita. Looking at some battery drills and the big box store has a set of the whites for around $225. It is a 18v lithium
Seems to be a pretty deal if you compare what it cost to bye the two tools impact driver and 1/2" drill/driver separately.

Makita blue or white

The blue tools have the 3.0 amp hr batt's and four pole "forever motors". The white tools have 1.5 amp hr batteries and plain old 2 pole "Serviceable" motors....

I cant speak for the "brushless" four pole makita drill or driver but I've used a 10.8V white and black set before, and they where solid tools that would take a drop from a 6' ladder and still run 3" screws till the cows came home............Good stuff
