Need Help Deciding which bike is best value

I am looking at two Trek bikes. One is a 2001 4900 16" frame which I will have to pay $200.00 for and the other is a 2009 4300 WSD 16" frame which I will have to pay $185 for. Both are in excellent condition with all original components. Is there that much difference or does one stand out over the other. (And yes, I am only seeking a good used entry level mountain trail bike - no hard mountain biking ever since I am 64 years old. Any help appreciated.

With a $15 difference, get the one that you like and the one that fits you better.
