OES iPrint vs iPrint Appliance?

I have not kept up on iPrint in the last year and I have not found an easy answer to this yet.
OES servers in place and eDir is healthy, should I use the appliance or OES for iPrint?

Thanks,

If you have a need for mobile printing, the appliance is the only
option. Even if you don't right now, if you forsee this being a
possibility in the future I'd still recommend migrating your printers
to the appliance so you're prepared. Even with just desktop printing,
expect to see future enhancements coming in the appliance but not
necessarily to iPrint in OES.

Great thanks.
One more question, when I import from our existing iPrint system to the appliance it will not destroy the existing iPrint printers? Then Move clients to the new appliance as needed?

Correct. It's just like moving iPrint from NW to OES. In fact, the
same migration utility that's a part of OES is also on the appliance.
