Which is best?

If I were to buy a Kimber full 5" 1911 with the Crimson Trace grips, which would be the better one?

I recently bought a Kimber for the better half and enjoy it so much, I am thinking of getting a full frame as well.

That is how the addiction and affliction starts. You can not buy just one! Enjoy your Kimber or Kimbers. I am not sure why you want a laser on a full size unless you just enjoy shooting with a laser. I always think of lasers on a smaller hand gun for home defense. I should add I do not have a laser on any of my guns so I probably am not the one to talk to about lasers.

Lasers are cool. Especially the Crimson trace laser grip's. They make some beautiful finishes on the panels and produce the lasers in green or red. They do have their applications and is just one more option for your side arm. I especially like the master series with real wood panels. It's fun to see your red dot on a target turn into a black hole while not even aiming down your sites.

Actually since you can put CT grips on any Kimber 5" 1911 it's more a matter of what other features you want on the gun. A SS Raptor II, Royal II, Stainless Gold Match, Master Carry Custom, Grand Raptor II and so on? How deep are your pockets?
