One of the better Rockhopper models (like a comp disc). They have a decent component set, a kick-ass frame, and an excellent feel. I also like Giant Rainier's quite a bit (even though I ride an '05 Rockhopper Comp). They both are spec'd pretty nice.
Of course, it depends on what you want to do. If you want to trail ride, get a Rockhopper (they are an excellent learning HT). If you want to dirt jump or huck, get a p2.
One other thing to note: if the store you are ordering from doesn't have the particular model you want and have to order it in, they will generally give you a discount on the bike (since you can't back out of the sale if they order it for you). You could try riding a base Rockhopper and if you like the feel of the bike, have them order in a Comp disc for you. Good luck.
