06 vs 05 Hardrock Comp

Ok so here's the deal.

My first entry into the world of mountain biking was with a 04 Hardrock Sport. I absolutely loved the bike and I never had to make a simple repair on the thing. Sure the chain popped off during a few larger drops, but overall suited me well.

Couple of weeks ago the thing was stolen, and I'm looking to buy another Specialized hardrock as my budget is tight and cant afford a higher level bike.

Two people near me are selling hardrock comps, one is a 05 comp, the other a 06 comp. Both are near new.

I looked over the differences on the specialized website and I don't see any real difference, at least that I can understand. Does anyone have any input on which is the better deal, if either, at about $325-350 dollars. I'm looking to buy soon because I'm pining for the trails.

Thanks
