Fuji or Marin or ?????

I'm in the market for a ~$800 MTB. I've looked at '05 Fuji Tahoe and '05 Marin Nail Trail. They seem to be very similar bikes in several ways. What does anyone think of these bikes and are there any other comparable to these? I'm looking for a lightweight HT that won't absolutely break the bank to give me a diversion from the road bike. Thanks.

While Fuji does make some pretty decent bikes the Nail Trail wins due to having better components. One thing to take note of the Manipoo Axel fork that comes on the Nail Trail is a mega piece of flexy garbage.
