    push ups are good for the chest if you can't do 20 push ups.
    once you have been trianing a while you should be banging out well over 20 push ups so in terms of gaining strength and getting big they are not particular useful.

    as for your actual question. there not be much difference. i would keep will regular push ups as they are free and you do not have to look for them.

    They can be useful to take the strain off your wrists if you feel any but other than that they aren't particularly advantageous.

    Changing hand position, elevating feet, using unstable devices, addiing additional weight, making them explosive all help to make the regular press-up harder and consequently increase the intensity.

    With pushups if you want to hit the pecs hard you need to have your hands in a wide position and really feel the stretch at the bottom. I like to do them between chairs so I can get deeper.
