Can't decide between the w1 and p100

I have been reading for weeks, and have gotten to play with both of them for days... but still can't decide between them.

P100 has more shooting modes, W1 has a larger screen.
P100 is smaller and lighter, W1 has a better grip.

P100 uses a lion battery that charges faster and supposedly holds a standby charger better, W1 has more battery options such as emergency AA buying and may get more actual pictures per charge depending on battery.

I have done night shooting, macro shots, indoor w/ and w/out flash, carried both around in my pocket all day... you name it.

I really don't care about the larger screen on the W1... so I am leaning twards the P100 because of the smaller size and lighter weight... but I am concerned about the battery.

Does anyone here have any info on actual shooting numbers (with flash and without, with LCD and without, night shot with lamp, auto, etc etc) between them? Can the p100 hold up on a battery for a day... or will a spare need to be carried? 2 spares?

Bleh they are both good in different ways... DAMN YOU SONY!
