    From a purely seo point of view, they are both fine, as the keyword constitutes the domain, and since Google is pretty indifferent to dashes.

    From a commercial point of view, it's a bit of a tossup: the domain without dashes is much easier to type in, but the dot com adds a note of prestige. It's also, as a rule, easier to sell the dot com domain.

    But my gut tells me to go with the uk domain, since you are a Brit, and assuming you're basically aiming at the British market, and since it is easier to type in. However, if you're also going for the US market, I would probably opt for the dot com.

    That's my 2 cents--others may have a better insight.
