Can you easily change the aperture and iso on the fly as you can on the D90 with the T2i?
I would think any modern (or even not so modern) DSLR would and should be easy to change aperture and ISO.. but I'm sure once you got used to either body, you would think its easy anyway.
If I were in your shoes, I'd be thinking about:
(1) which lens system suits my needs and budget better (does Nikon have all the potential lenses you want at the prices you can afford? Does Canon?)
(2) AF system, which one is better? Do you need "better" or not? Although I think determining the better AF may not be as easy as your friends make it out to be.
(3) Video, will I ever need/want it? I know both bodies have it, the T2i, I believe, is better.
Although lots of people here (and apparently your friends) will discount the higher megapixels, personally, I welcome all the megapixels I can get, provided it doesnt come at a great expense of image quality.
And another thing to consider.. if your friends are shooting Nikon, you could borrow their lenses if you had a Nikon body, right?
Not trying to make your choice more difficult, just saying these are things I would be considering in your shoes.
