nope, not with the amount of riding that you are going to be doing. They are all going to have different hybrids in different price ranges, that is where you will be able to decide what component group you will get. My wife rides a giant cypress with a rigid fork and loves it, the gear range is good, the ride is smooth, and the components have held up well for the last 8 years. We have pretty decent roads around here so the front suspension doesn't do much but add weight.
As for the 7200, I am not really a huge fan of trek because it seems like you are paying for the name. That being said they do make a good bike, but I think you can get a little bang for your buck with a different brand.
The most important piece of advice I can give you is to ride as many bikes as you can until you find one that fits you. If some of the shops won't let you ride the bikes, then go somewhere else where you can get in a good test ride. If you don't plan on doing your own maintenance, then there is not much better than a good friendly bike shop.
