Hi, I'm looking into buying a dremel rotary tool 200 series, are there advantages to buying the 300 series instead?

Hi, I'm looking into buying a dremel rotary tool 200 series, are there any significant advantages to spending a bit more and getting a 300 series or better? I'm new to this equipment, but hope to use it for a wide variety of purposes. Is the variable speed essential? And what about the flex shaft? Any advice, tips, etc. would be greatly appreciated. Thank you. ~Mr. Retro~

It really depends on your specific needs. As you know, the biggest difference between the two kits is the benefit of the variable speed on the 300 series tool vs. the two speed action of the 200 series. What applications are you planning on using the tool for? If you want to use the full range of of the Dremel tool (cutting, polishing, grinding, cleaning, etc), you want to get a 300 series, but if you are planning on just cutting, the 200 series will do just fine.
