rb750up versus rb2011;
cpu 400mHz vs 600mHz 0 - 1
chipset AR7241 vs AR9344-BC2A 0 - 1
ram 32Mb vs 64Mb 0 - 1
Ether 5x vs 5x 1 - 1
GigaE - vs 5x 0 - 1
PoE-out 4x vs 1x 2 - 1
Volt Mon yes vs no (?) 1 - 0
Price usd 60,- vs usd 99,- 2 - 1
So, 6 points for the 750 versus 7 for the 2011.
Off course, some would weigh some items higher than others.
When very high througputs are to be expected, the 2011 will be the choice.
When PoE is of importance with volt monitor the 750 probably is the winner, also because it will be cheaper.
To have both of best worlds combined: 8-10 ports (5+5) with Poe-out on all 9/10 ports with full voltage and amp monitors and the higher end cpu specs for the 2011 serie would probably make it an expensive box.
Imho an in-between model with 8-10 Poe-out ether (giga is nice) ports and full (per port and
overall) power consumption/usage monitoring but with the cheapest chipset/memory option would make a very nice featured model for towers, special if they are solar charged!
The best of both worlds option would make it an expensive box, but for crowded high-end towers finances are probably the lesser issue!
Lets hope MT reads this and see in Venice what they are cooking...
