I've had several since 1999 but have settled on my beloved 2001 Litespeed Tuscany and my latest, a 2015 Cannondale SuperSix EVO carbon
Welcome. They're all basically the same bike. The big difference is the shifters. A has stem shifters. B has downtube shifters. C has integrated shifters and brake levers, much like what you'll find on more expensive bikes. Go for the C model.
I don't care for the handlebars being that high. Looks scary to me. Why do you want the bars so high?

I would suggest that you go and test ride bikes in your area. That way you can get a better feel for the bike itself - the geometry of it, the fit, and of the frame material. Different bikes feel different and it's almost like buying shoes. You want something that's going to FIT you right and feel comfortable. AND get the job that you want done, completed.
Good luck on your search!
