CX sounds like a great fit for your needs. I use one as both a commuter and for when I ride rougher roads. More upright position for comfort, wider tires for traction. If you get some with cross levers it allows you to brake from the flats as well which is nice. Problem with cross levers is they can make mounting lights on your bars iffy. As for which one to get, sounds like you may not be real clear on what you need. I suggest checking out some LBSs and see what they say. Most bikes in any given range will be mostly comparable so get what feels right and speaks to you. Figure out a basic budget to tell the shop, give them your needs, and test ride some bikes. One decision you will need to make is SRAM vs Shimano (and of course Campy). All are fine quality so try both and see what you like.
