Last year I saw this machine at the 2010 SCAA. I recognized the similarity to GEE and asked Mr Crossland. He did not give me a direct answer, but a diplomatic response. Due to fund, time, cost, etc, etc, and to bring a machine to market quicker, the GEE was chosen. We also talked about the CC2 and its temperature management idea. In fact, from my recollection, he was more eager to discuss the CC2 rather than the CC1. As Jon mentioned earlier, he is an engineer's engineer.
As stated earlier and again, I just want to know exactly what improvements were made. It does not imply anything otherwise. Perhaps HB can run a side by side comparison once the CC1 is released.
