Spoke Count Question...

Hey everyone.

I was wondering whether lower spoke count wheels are typically more "fragile" than higher spoke count wheels??

My common sense would tell me that the higher spoke count would be a bit more rugged, but I'm just not sure. I'm new to all of this and trying to make a decision on a bicycle.

The two bikes in question are both Giant Cypress models, one is the LX and one is the SX. I really like the SX because it's looks are more appealing to me, however, the roads that I will be riding on aren't exactly the greatest and if the higher spoke count of the LX wheels will last longer then I may go with it.
