ANyone know if there is any real difference? The roundabout is much cheaper so I guess it does not go up to 65 pounds like the marathon does.

Have a look on the american britax site. I just had a quick look and it looks like there are 2 types of each seat. One of each goes up 2 40lb rear 70lb forward facing and one of each has a lower weight limit. Are you in America? As these seats would not be leagal to use in uk.
