differences are there???

Off the top of my head:

The E4000 is easily rackmounted - the E3000 isn't
The E4000 chassis is physically smaller than the E3000
The E4000 hasn't got wheels
The E4000 has no internal hotswap disk slots - the E3000 has ten
The E4000 scales to 14 CPUS/28GB RAM max - the E3000 scales to 6 CPUs/
12GB RAM max
The E4000 scales to 7 I/O boards max - the E3000 scales to 3 I/O boards 

Other than that, the two systems are pretty much the same. The use of 
common parts across the E3000-E6500 range makes them really easy to 
upgrade and maintain.
