Default Nikon CP 4500 vs. Minolta DiMage S414

After looking all over, I've somewhat narrowed it down to these two.

First off, I would like to mainly take close up/macro shots of reptiles. Many people on kingsnake.com use the 4500 for extreme detail(macro) shots and are very happy with that camera. The 4300 and 5700 are also very popular there.

I LOVE the pics with the 4500, but I'm wondering, as a new user, will I be happier with the S414? The S414 looks to have more options and may be something I can grow into as my skills improve. I would like this to be a good all around camera that I would also be happy taking on vacation (love the S414 AA batteries for that!)

Is there that much of a difference in the macro (I understand Nikon is tops) vs. Nikon close ups for someone like myself?

Also, the cannon A70/A80 also look attractive.

Any suggestions for this newbie? Thank you VERY MUCH for your time and help!!!!
