i see that you are interested at the Catalyst 2960X and your organization currently has the 2960's in place. There are a lot of advantages of the newer X model especially the speed on the LAN Base. Feel free to email me directly so we can discuss this further in details.
One of the main advantages of the X series over the S series is that there is additional stacking throughput on the switches. The X series provides 80Gbps of stacking throughput while the S series only provides 40Gbps. The X series also supports up to 8 members per stack as opposed to the 4 members the S series allows. To enable backwards compatibility between the models you will need to use the 'switch stack port-speed 10' command and you need to purchase models which support LAN Base images.
The X series switches feature Dual-Core 600MHz CPU and NewFlow-Lite on all downlink and uplink ports. In addition the X series supports more active VLANs, 1,000 compare to 255, a 4MB Egress buffer while the S series only supports 2MB. The X series also provides additional SPAN sessions, and supports 8K more MAC addresses.
In addition to the added features and upgrades provided by the X series it also supports additional energy efficiency features like EEE and hibernation mode providing a lower power consumption and cost of ownership.
