Default Is The Dock really any better than the MC Control?

Besides the higher on screen track counts, and clearly superior touch screen, is there really any significant improvement over the MC Control? What will The Dock do that the Control MC won't?

My biggest disappointment in both devices is the lack of feedback from the screens. We've got all these squares for navigation and plugs, but all the actual controls are pushed to "the margins" left and right. To me the better approach would've been to have the ONE CHANNEL view like the digital consoles. You select the channel and all the info is there as you would expect to see it.

So when I select EQ, the center of the screen turns into the EQ Window SHOWING THE CURVES being developed, not just a numeric readout in the left and right margins. The same would go for the dynamics. To me, these are critical omissions.

That aside, I just wondered if there were any other features where The Dock just soared above the Control MC?

In a rush... logged hundreds of hours on both devices. It's night and day. Dock is far better. I could make a list, but trust me, the list would have fifty bullet points.
