Difference between 9951 and 9971

I'm trying to find out if there are any differences between a Cisco 9951 and a 9971.  I need to get some camera phones for my home lab for CCIE Collaboration.  The 9951 is half the price of the 9971.  The only difference I've found online is that a 9951 can only use 2 sidecars, and the 9971 can use 3.  I'm not planning on using any sidecars, so that makes no difference to me at all.  Is there anything else I should know?

Hi,Another important factor

Hi,

Another important factor is the wireless support in 9971. Please check the following datsheets for more details.

It's a tough call.  I think I'm going to bite the bullet and get the 9971's.

 

Thanks guys.

Hi,

Hi, Another difference between 9951 and 9971 is that 9971 has a touch screen for everthing, if you only use 9900 family for a lab environment I could recommend you the 9951, they have the same telephony features. If it was useful please rate. Regards.
