Help me choose, Scott CX Team or Stevens Prestige

Hello,
Just got rid of my steel whip in favor of something more modern and lighter. I have two local bike shops that has two different CXs on offer, Scott CX team 2010 and Stevens Prestige 2011. Price is the the same and equipment more or less the same to me (well 2010 ultegra of the 2011 version). Not sure about the wheels though, I will probably build up a pair of tubulars for the autumn so the stock wheels would be to see me through the summer when I will use the CX as a road bike. Is there any real differences between the two e.g. like frame significantly better with one or the other or big difference in performance between 2010 and 2011 ultegra.

The use of the bike will be as road bike during the summer for training and as CX during autumn for training and a few competitions.

Cheers,

Well I live far away from you, in Europe . If no obvious difference I think I will probably go for the stevens. I like the bike shop better and I think I would get better service there.
