I've been doing alot of reading through threads and I notice most people with Mt Vernon's on here have the AE model. When we bought ours in 2005, there was no AE (or atleast it wasn't available to us in this area I am not sure when they were introduced). I am curious if anyone here has experiences with both and if the AE has many benefits over of the older Mt Vernon I have? I have been curious for awhile and was wondering if anyone could shed any light onto the subject! Thanks!
