The MX80 has only 2GB of RAM. We have discontinued all our MX80 routers
over the past 12 months as the full table was causing them to lock-up
and reboot.

The MX104 has 4GB of RAM, so you have more headroom. But the CPU is just
as bad as in the MX80.

At this stage, I'd say the cheapest MX router you should go for that is
decent is the MX204.
