Choosing between Andersen 100 and 200

I'm building an out-building that will have windows. I don't want to spend a lot of money. I also don't want to have the hassle of getting multiple bids from different window shops. That said, although I don't want to spend a lot of money or time on this, I do want to get the best windows I might within those parameters. So, it'll be Andersen and Home Depot. I've priced both the 100 and 200 lines, which required slightly different configurations since the 200 line is restricted to specific stock sizes. Overall, the 200 bid was 20% more than the 100. The question is, are the 200s worth the 20%? Will they last longer? Leak less? Insulate better?
