Bike comparison

I accidently posted this in the wrong section earlier. Meant to post it in here, but here is the deal...

I've been getting some good info on here searching the forums the last couple weeks or so. I think I found a couple decent deals. I've narrowed it down to the following Three bikes.

2009 rockhopper base model- $550 out the door.

2009 rockhopper comp disc- $750 out the door.

2010 hardrock sport disc. - $575 out the door.

I'm really leaning towards the 2009 rockhopper because it is $200 less than the one with disc brakes, and the only difference I see is the Disc brakes, and the Shimano FC-M36108 crankset. Do you think those two things are worth the extra money? The sport disc 2010 is lacking some of the quality parts I think though.

Just keep in mind that with a disc model you are getting a disc wheelset too. The base Rockhopper will make that a spendy upgrade if you decide at some point you want to go disc.
