Quite many. Although a bit old quite detailed and almost correct http://www.roble.com/docs/fw1_or_pix.html

In my opinion Checkpoint is targetted at the high end customers or Enterprise grade customers where as PIX main group of customers is SME & Mid range enterprises or Price concious customers.

I have already gone thru that article, it is good, but some of the points he has pointed out are too old and they have been resolved by Checkpoint and cisco.
Like HA by checkpoint and integrating all services in a single box by cisco when they introduced ASA.

Well, then the first question shall be asked is in what perspective, with the advancement of technology the capability gap is (mostly)gone already. Now its more like the User friendlyness, or GUI, Cost, scalability which adds up to more of of the buying decision.
