After reviewing the specs, The Rockhopper has:

-Better cranks
-Alloy steer tube on the fork (VS steel)
-Avid BB5 mechanical brakes (VS Shimano M485)
-IMO better wheels

The Cannondale has:
-Better RD
-Better shifters

My personal opinions:

The Rockhopper's white paint job looks sweet. The head tube also looks way more normal on the Rockhopper. (unless you are planning on running a lefty or something of the sort) I like the build quality of the Specialized bikes.
