The one difference with these machines is the throughput. A university facility needed 2 flow cells that could be run independently to help manage a queue, since a paired end run would be almost two weeks (less now). But if most runs are 1-3 days, then that is less of a problem. I suspect the 3000 won't be substantially cheaper so it won't be appealing since you might as well get twice the capacity for a little extra, but some of the other reasons are less important for these machines.
