Gitzo Systematic: Differences with Mountaineer?

Hi, I've read that the Gitzo Systematic series are more stable than the Mountaineer series. The obvious difference is that the Systematic series has no center column, but is that all people mean when they say it's more stable? Or are there other design features in the Systematic series that contribute to their stability that the Mountaineers don't?

In other words, what differences are there between:
GT3531S
vs
GT3531 (with center column removed, which I am assuming is possible?)
