Tiny changes such as this will not affect the personality of the ski at all.
The capabilitites will be 99% identical. Buy according to color or deal (whichever is most important to you)
FWIW: When companies make minor changes such as this, it is often (but not always) to placate the marketing department. Ski designers/testers know better of course, but the reality of it is that most product design starts in the marketing department.
