Default Greenline 7 speed - Steel or Alum?

I really like the looks of the Greenline 7 speed cruisers....
They have one in steel frame and one in aluminum frame with some better components..
Both use the same forks (steel)......aluminum is about 9-10 lbs. lighter....
I've read that there are differing opinions as to whether to use aluminum or steel frames....
Thoughts??? Should I save the weight? or go fo steel due to possible strength concerns with aluminum?? (6061-T6)
I plan on doing a bit of peddaling so was thionking any weight saved is a good thing!!!

Thanks from a newbie....
