Could you elaborate?

I went shopping some weeks ago -
Bought a 1400 for ~$15, which still lays at my relay to ship it
to the old world since it is somewhat bulky and heavy.
Stumbled over an 1100 at eBay for $2 some weeks later.
Liked it more since it looked smaller (and potentially less noisy and
power-hungry) so I bought this also.
So I'm waiting for the shipment of either of those, but I'm in favor
of the 1100, because of the above mentioned points.
