Unless you're buying them on the used market.

The 7200's are still useful if you require port density, 
especially for non-Ethernet interfaces. We use them to 
aggregate a bunch of E1's (cSTM-1), and it's much cheaper to 
do that (refurbished units) on the 7200 because it's a 
software router, and the bandwidth requirements of E1 
customers aren't a major threat to the system.
