Don't feel bad - neither can I.
There're a lot of very subtle differences. There's an article somewhere that goes into detail. One or two points I remember include the ship being very slightly lengthened, the nacelles moved a bit, and I think they added more phasers and/or torpedo launchers. I believe on the original design they had a nasty blind spot for phasers, which is very bad for a ship that (at least the fanbase expects) was designed to fight the Borg.
That said, getting into the blind spot left you at the mercy of the aft torpedo launcher, so it's very questionable as to just how much of a strategic advantage that would be. Maybe if the captain wanted to defeat you, but not COMPLETELY destroy you...
