I was looking at this and the pocket rocket and they look almost identical, besides the ignitor which I really don't care about. Does anyone know what the difference between the two is besides the ignitor?

The MicroRocket is intended to compete with higher-end lightweight stove systems, whereas the PocketRocket is more of an 'econo-stove'. The differences are slight though - MR weighs .5 ounces less, but it is supposed to be more durable and more compact.
This pic shows how it folds differently than the PR.

The video posted above describes the difference. It's basically a bit smaller/lighter than the pocket rocket

0.4 ounces & $20 seem to be the biggest differences between the two.
