Agreed I think you are thinking "bike dealer" rather than "bike rider"  Its good to get used to one bike and get the most out of it before moving on Chunk, a better bike doesnt always make you a better rider (specially if so similar as two Stumpys).
I dont know the spec of the bikes but one thing to remember is that as the resession hit in 2010 and value of the dollar dropped in Asia where they and the components are made, many of the bikes in makers ranges only  maintained their price level by de-specifying the running gear, so your 2009 Elite will most likely have better running gear than a 2011 comp!
