Why the D700 instead of the D3?

I’m getting ready to buy my next body and I’m thinking about the D700 instead of the D3. As near as I can tell, the only functional differences seem to be the D700 doesn’t have 5:4 format, D700 has a slightly smaller viewfinder frame, the fps (because the D700 only has 1 card?) is lower on the D700, and the images per battery charge are lower on the D700. But, the D700 has a built-in flash and many more flash functions that the D3 doesn’t have. Why did you all choose the D700? Did you consider a D3? If so, why did you end up with the D700? Am I missing something or is the D700 a virtual equal to the D3 at a lower price? I've quickly come to learn there are a lot of smart Nikonians out there.

Stop and take the picture, you may not get a second chance.
