New Infinity Modem

Other than the fact that I no longer need a separate router, what are the advantages I should expect from the new model?

Some have pretty decent routers (most just have ok routers), they are DOCSIS 3 devices which means they offer more speed and stability. The all-in-one devices are known as "gateways" and are a bit of a compromise over separate routers and modems. The key advantage is that you can just hook up a single device and not have to worry about home networking.
