I'm also a big fan of Specialized, however there are so many good bikes out nowadays, you almost can't go wrong with any of the aforementioned bikes. If you're not into having the latest and greatest, you can always get great deals on left over models. The new 2002's are coming and the 2001's will be on closeout. You may want to wait another month or two before spending those Ben Franklins on a bike.
I'm always into riding what no one else is riding. You could probably buy a frame and build it up yourself for about $1500.00 that way it would be full custom. Like I said, closeout prices are starting to hit and you can get some great components at superb prices.
P.S. Check out the new Haro Bikes. Nice bikes, good prices, and not everyone has one. That'll probably be my next bike.
P.S.S. For $1500 you can also get a really nice used bike that would be "race ready". Check out www.mtbr.com
under marketplace and have fun shopping.
