Choice of Forends for a Remington 870

It looks like may have a choice of forends for the 870 express 7 shot I bought. One is what I believe is called the short forend and supposedly is only sold for LE guns. See the first picture below.

The other is shown in the lower picture. It is longer with some of the upper part cut back so as to allow the forend to clear the ejection port.

What are the benefits of either. I believe the short LE stuyle permits the use of a 6 shot shell sidesaddle. Is there any other reason to prefer one type over the other. Personallly, I could do without a sidesaddle.
