Topic - Cyclocross or road bike?

I'm looking for some quality UKC Advice please. I'm looking to buy a bike for commuting, the odd long road ride, and that I can occasionally take off road on tracks. My budget is 850. Do I go for a road bike and get a set of wider tires for off road, or get a cyclocross and buy a set of skinny tyres for the rare long road ride? At the price I'm looking at (high end of low price/low end of medium price), is there really any difference between these options? Perhaps it's worth adding that the city I live in is perhaps tw worst for potholes in Britain. Or to ask a different level of question, what sort of things should influence my choice? So, just from one seller, two bikes at the same price...at this price is there really any huge difference? Thanks for taking time to reply. Nick
