Why ActiveSync for Gmail on Z10?
I've read lots of stuff online about adding a Gmail account as ActiveSync on my Z10, but I can't find a clear reason why it's better than adding a gmail account with IMAP. Can someone tell me why ActiveSync is better than IMAP for Gmail on the Z10?
Side-note: I get a 403 error when I try to add my personal gmail account as ActiveSync.

ActiveSync is only available for people who have it setup already, or for paying Google Apps customers.
ActiveSync is in theory a more battery friendly setup, and requires only one account to be setup on the phone to sync your contacts, calendar and email rather than the 3 otherwise required (CardDev, CalDev and your IMAP email account).

FROM Google Sync End of Life - Google Apps Help
Google Sync was designed to allow access to Gmail, Google Calendar, and Contacts via the Microsoft® Exchange ActiveSync® protocol. With the recent launch of CardDAV, Google now offers similar access via IMAP, CalDAV, and CardDAV, making it possible to build a seamless sync experience using open protocols. Starting January 30, 2013, consumers won't be able to set up new devices using Google Sync, however, existing Google Sync connections will continue to function.
