An old D70 or a new D40?

Which would you buy?

A D70 body for $400 and an 18-70 for $200. Total: $600

A D40 18-55 Kit - $600

A EOS XTi 18-55 Kit - $830

This is for my sister in law who is leaving for Europe in two weeks. I have never shot with a D70 (I went from an N80 to a D50 to a D200) so I am having a difficult time deciding which path I should tell her to take.

I'm asking this forum because I trust your judgement better than the lower forum.

Thanks.
