Default T1i or T2i? (camera question)

Hello Everyone,

I'm not sure if this is the proper area of the forum to post this question in, but I believe I've seen similar questions posted in this area.

Anyways, I just received a Canon EOS Rebel T1i for Christmas, along with a 55-250 mm lens.

Now, I have two choices - I can keep the T1i, or I can give my father $100 to instead purchase the T2i.

The only real difference that I can see is the 15 megapixels of the T1i vs. the 18 megapixels of the T2i.

So I suppose my two main questions are:
1) Is there a huge noticeable difference between 15 mp and 18 mp?
2) I'd call myself an "advanced beginner" - is the T2i really worth the extra $100? (I suppose this question is pretty much based on my first question, in a sense).

That's all - Thankyou in advance for responses.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all.
