the '10 is lighter than last years model. for $75 difference, i'd go with the '10 since it's a lighter frame. this way, in the future, if you wanted to upgrade your bike, you'd have a decent frame to begin with.
either way you are getting a good bike. if weight is not a concern for you and money is, go for the 09. you can probably haggle even more on the 09. my local bike store had an 09 7.2 for $420 and i think they would have gone lower if i really wanted it.
getting the 09 would be cool too since you could spend that extra $ on a helmet, bike pump, or whatever you wanted to add onto your bike.
choice is yours.
