She likes de looks of the envie, but she need a bike for climbing also.
The only downside of the Envie is that it's an older design than the Langma/Tarmac, but I wouldn't worry too much about that.
Disclosure: I'm sponsored by Velocite, but I do give my honest opinion about them (I'm endorsed to race their bikes, not say nice things about them)

True, although you should be able to upgrade the Langma to the same Giant carbon wheels and come out at a similar price to the Envie and Tarmac (where the Tarmac is still on a more basic wheelset). The Langma should be a smoother ride than the Envie on bad roads but they'll both climb and they'll both race really well.
I can tell you for the seasons I rode my Cervelo S2 I climbed just fine. Would I have climbed faster with a non-aero bike? Yeah sure, but the S2 was hella fast so the Envie probably will be too. She'll be happy enough with the Envie so long as you sort out any doubts about the brakes.
It's important though for her to stop and think: does she want a climbing bike, an aero bike, an aggressive fit all-rounder, or something more endurance oriented? That will tell her what bikes to look at and will rule out others.
I would get her on something she likes, but most important that she is comfortable on and likes riding. My fiancé ended up on a Trek Silque - pretty upright geometry, very "cushioned", but good bike to progress on. No point having her not ride because she's uncomfortable.

Do you really? If she's just starting out, surely the bike is of secondary importance. She won't be lighting up the TdF shortly to warrant bike specialisation. If you can find an allround bike she likes, all the better, but the Envie is a very good bike in any case. I'd say if she gets to pick the bike she likes, there's more chance of her effectively riding it.
If I'm reading it wrong and she's not just starting out, disregard my post

Sorry, can't help. Too generic information. I would first go by geometry, then by comfort, then weight, then aeroness
