Why whole body? Any technology that can repair damaged caused by aging/disease/cryopreservation is going to be able to grow you a new one. Neuros cost 1/3rd less, require less maintenance, and are much easier to move safely should the need arise. (At least one patient is probably still in suspension as a result of the ability to move her head quickly.)

Honestly, I think I just feel more comfortable having the whole body right now. Maybe that'll change by the time I can afford to sign up for Alcor and pay life insurance and whatnot... giving it a few seconds of reflection it does not seem likely that there is anything critical sentience-wise (other than basic life-sustaining functions) outside of the head.
