Mike,
Here is what I have figured out so far, and someone correct me if I am wrong..
SE V2 - Kit form, Latest SE, has all the bling (all metal where possible), Carbon Fiber frame
SE (V1) - Kit form, earlier version of the SE V2, I think had some issues including tail rotor.
SA - Kit form, same as SE V2, but with composite in most places and aluminum frame. Some versions available with Carbon fiber bits
SA ARF - 95% built. Same as SA, but only in composite. Some Horizon packages include 3550 Kv motor and ESC
XL CDE - Kit form, First Trex with CCPM, but not servo direct to swashplate. Uses linkages to go betweeen servos and swash.
XL HDE - Kit form, Non CCPM (you still have 4 servos, AIL,ELE,PIT and RUD, but AIL/ELE are the only two that work the swashplate).

Have you flown helis before??
If you are new to it, I would suggest an SE V2 (if you can afford it) or an SA (if your on a budget).
If you are uncomfortable building it, and there are a LOT of pieces, go with the SA with a combo deal. It can be had for about $250.
If you are new, you will also need (for any kit) a Transmitter/Receiver, Gyro, Servos (if not with Tx/Rx, or if they are poor quality), Brushless Motor, ESC and 2100 mah 20C battery.
If you go with the SA ARF, motor and ESC are included.

The 450SE V2 also has rotor head improvements, using thrust bearings and a larger-diameter feathering shaft.

450S is available from hobbypeople.net for $229. Includes brushless motor and esc. As (not if) you break the plastic parts, replace them with metal. Shop the internet for good prices.
