This debate is as old as which came first, the chicken or the egg. You can search pages and pages of threads about Canon vs Nikon. You can't go wrong with either company, just research what you want in a camera and you'll be able to find something you want in either line.

I think the final image is the decider. The camera body is only a factor up to a certain point. A great lens on a lesser body will get more image quality performance than a kit lens on a great body. If you feel the need to upgrade, upgrade your lenses.
There are some differences between the T1i and the T3i simply because there are always differences between a newer generation of models. None of them are going to have any quantitative effect to your images.

Which ever one works best for you. You may get a few newer bells and whistles on a newer model but would it be worth it to you?
I am still learning on my 40D, and so far am content with it.

English muffin or bagel? Bacon or sausage?
It's really just a personal preference. One isn't really better than the other.
That said, I love my Canon. My dad spent all the money he didn't have when I was in high school to buy me a Canon rebel (film) and I was bitten with the photography bug. I just stuck with Canon when I eventually started getting back into photography years down the road. But, the other options are good. You can really go either way.

The best camera hands down is the one that feels the best in your hands, works the best for you and that you are 100% comfortable with
Sure a model may do more than another model at times but it is the photographer not the camera that makes a great shot!

I have Canon but I've heard that the auto ISO is really good on Nikon while on the Canon it is very hit and miss so I don't use it.

Well...I was told by a Canon user that my images were so nice. Then she noticed my camera and said, "Oh, that's why your pictures are so good---you have a Nikon!" LOL!!!
