Depends on your market.  If your anticipated user base is going to use a 
lot of bandwidth, then you'll quickly exhaust the 7200 series, whereas 
the ASR-X series can scale.

If you use a 7200, be prepared for it to fall over whenever a single 
user is hit by small DDoS attack.  ASR-X's have handled these well 
enough in my experience.

If you have space/power constraints, you can support more with a 1 or 
2RU ASR-X than a rack full of 7200's.

QoS support scales better on the ASR-X series.

Finally, TAC.
