Another need advice thread! Fuji Tahoe Comp 29er vs. Gary Fisher Cobia 29er

Hey everyone. Long time lurker, first time poster. Handing down my old 2007 Diamondback Outlook Hardtail XC to my son and ready to move up to a 29er. Have a small budget as I just purchased a new Felt Z85 road bike and the wifey will kill me if I spend much more than $600.

Anyways, been checking out Craigslist and have come across a 2009 Gary Fisher Cobia and a 2009 Fuji Tahoe Comp, both 29ers. Both have similar components and have ridden both. Both ride great and are in great condition. Looking for some advice as I am unfamiliar with mountain bikes but really want to start doing some cross country style riding. Here are links to both bike and their specs:

I can get the Gary Fisher for between $575 - $600 and the Fuji for $350 - $400. Planning on making a final decision tomorrow so any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance!

Cobia 29er vs. Felt Nine 60

So checked out the Fuji, it was way too big. Have a few weeks before deciding on the GF Cobia but found a Felt Nine 60. I own a Felt road bike and love it. It's a new 13' while the Cobia is an 09'. Cobia has a RockShok Tora Ace Solo Air fork vs. the Felts XC30 spring loaded fork which I think is the biggest difference between the 2 besides the age. I can get the GF for between $550 - $600 and the Felt for $750. Going to test ride the Felt next week, won't see the owner of the GF for a few more weeks.
