Trek 4500 or Specialized Rockhopper?

Which one of these bikes is a better deal. They are about the same in price but Im kind of new to this soI was wondering which one has better components? Thanks for any help.

see what fits the best. that's the better bike to you. the better bike to me is the 4500 because it comes with better components and a trek frame.

Trek 4500...

I tried my friend's OLD rockhopper and it wasn't all THAT great. Though it has a better frame for jumping.

Gotta say the trek and not just because i have one. better driveline componets and a trek frame that wont warp easily. i have ridden the rockhopper before as well and it just felt wrong somehow. just ride them both. its 80 percent feel, 20 percent componets.
