Default Buying a camera....need help.

I am going to be buying a new Digital camera. Which should I buy? They are both $149.99

Nikon L3 5.1 Megapixel
and
Canon Powershot A530

I'm leaning more toward the Nikon because of their very high quality, but Canon is too.

Canon and Nikon both make nice cameras.

However, the Canon gives you a better wide angle and a longer telephoto. It also has a larger aperture for lower light shots and a closer macro focus range.
