Since you already have the Porter Cable I'd get the Flex PE14 rotary buffer.

Then if you ever choose to sand with the PC you can remove your sanding marks with the Flex PE14 and remove the holograms with the PC.

If you just want to use the Flex PE14 with a wool pad and a compound you can still remove heavy oxidation plus any other level of oxidation and then follow-up with the PC.

Check out the 7.5" wool pad I recommend here,
