Upgrade to AS11?

Upgrade to AS11?
I am a happy sleeper with my AS10. I hate sleeping without my machine. Sometimes I have to travel and I forget something. Last time it was the power supply. Anyway, is there any compelling reason to update to the AS11?

I don't think so.

As far as I can tell, there have been no changes to the algorithms. Some people report that the fixed hose outlet is a nuisance, or that it feels lighter and cheaper. The clock cannot be set to the correct time if it happens to be wrong, and the time zones are limited to hourly offsets.

I've read several user reports saying that the workings of the two machines effectively the same, subject to the comments pholnyk has made above. Sometimes "new and improved" isn't.

RE: Upgrade to AS11?
There are several websites that lay out the differences between the Resmed 10 and the Resmed 11. One site that has a good list of the differences is called CPAP.  That’s it, just CPAP and then the com. It must have been one of the first CPAP companies on line, or maybe they paid a lot for that domain name.  As pholynyk said, there doesn’t seem to be any difference in the algorithm. Some  differences might be important to some people, for example, the 11 has Bluetooth. The 11 is good at elevations up to 9,670 feet/ 2947 meters, whereas the 10 is good only up to 8,500 feet/ 2590 meters. However, if you’re using it at an elevation of 9,670 feet/ 2947 meters, there’s a good chance you’ll be camping, and if you’re camping you’ll need a battery supply, which the 11 doesn’t have. There have been several posts about that shortcoming.
