Merida Matts 1000 Lite vs Specialized Rockhopper Pro

I am looking at getting a decent hardtail and the 2011 models are all on good specials at the moment: the 2 bikes i have narrowed it down to are the Merida Matts 1000D 2011 and Specialized Rockhopper Pro.

 

The Merida is R8 500 and the Specialized R9 000. They are very similarly spec'd except that the Specialized has 2bliss tyres.

 

A few questions: firstly - what would you guys do in this situation?

Secondly - the 2bliss tyres on the specialized - are these good to run tubeless as I dont think that they're UST?

 

The specialized does cost more and does not have pedals on it so would have to add those too taking it to about R9500 which starts pushing me out of my price bracket i had banked on - is it worth the extra R500/R1000 for the Specialized?

 

Any other suggestions of bikes to look at in the 8 grand bracket?

They're made by the same company so I would say there's not much to choose between the 2, which colour do you prefer.
