Bianchi Camaleonte 2 or 3 ?

I am plannign on buying either the camaleonte 2 or 3 this week but would like some advice on choosing between the two . I am planning on using it for commuting and for doing a couple of weeks touring . I need something that can handle doing 60 odd miles a day .

My main concern is whether the components on the camaleonte 2 would be up to job . The set up is-

Shifters Shimano ALIVIO
Rear Derailleur Shimano DEORE 8s
Front Derailleur Shimano ALIVIO
Crankset Fsa DYNADRIVE 48/38/28

where as the camaleonte 3 has -

Shifters Shimano LX
Rear Derailleur Shimano LX 8s
Front Derailleur Shimano LX Triple
Crankset Fsa MOTO MegaExo 48/36/26

I am on quite a tight budget and would ideally like to get the Camaleonte 2 and use the remaining cash to buy a rack/helmet/chain/clothing etc .

Would really appreciate some feedback on this issue .

Thanks !
