You are probably paying about $100 extra for the carbon fork. Definitely extra for the Shimano Deore front and rear derailleurs & shift levers. More expensive wheel set. Hard to say on many of the other components, as both are using a lot of no-name, house-brand stuff.
The Fuji is lighter, my guess is by 3-4 pounds. More speed-oriented than the KHS. But the KHS would likely have a smooth ride, with its cro-moly frame and wider (35mm) tires - although those Fuji carbon forks do a good job of absorbing vibration.
