Help me decide- 2003 Scattante CFR vs. 2002 Fuji Teamaarontoy

I need to buy my bike before the Sea Otter and have narrowed it down to these 2. I know Fuji is more established and perhaps not much is known about the Scattante, however the specs and that fact that it's a full carbon lean me toward the Scattante. Both are full Ultegra and both have worthy, comparable components. The price diff between the 2 is not an issue for me. *I'd be grateful for any opinions out there.* Also worthy of noting, and I don't really consider myself a gram counter, BUT...the Fuji weighs in at 16.8 lbs and the Scattante at 18.3 lbs. Is that REALLY a big deal? Thanks. -@@ron

I can't say enough good about my Fuji Team - so far. I only have about 100 miles on it, but I'm pretty impressed with the handling & ride. It screams up hills and takes off when you put some muscle into it.
The wheels were fairly out of true when I got it, but after messing with them a bit they haven't gone out at all even after some shallow pot holes. I like the comfort of the seat despite what others have said about it.
