 Well the 7201 comes with 4x GE ports, and with the NPE-G2 your only getting
3x GE ports to start.  To get the same you would have to add a PA-GE to your
router, and probably the Jacket Card and PA-GE if you didn't want to suck up
all the bandwidth points of the slots.

 Personally I went with a 7206VXR (why get 4 slots in the same size chassis
when you can have 6), and the NPE-G2.  I do have to admit to needing a
couple PA slots, as I needed to support a DS3 and a couple DS1 lines as well
in the router.

 I think as others mentioned, the 7201 is smaller if your space tight..
