Low-pitch roofing options

For a patio-area single storey extension, my architect has suggested a choice of either:

- Marley Mendip low-pitch interlocking concrete roof tiles
- slates with the Permavent 'Easy-Slate' side strips.

We also expect to use low-pitch 'Fakro' roof lights.

Please can anyone advise of the pros and cons of these options, especially their relative costs (is one much easier/quicker to install than the other?)
And, especially, will the Fakro roof lights fit much better within the Marley-Mendip type roofing, or Slate with Permavent strips?

Thanks for your thoughts
