To me it looks like a 2001 model:
I'd say it's a unisex frame, and judging by the severe slope of the top tube it's a small one, so it just might fit you very well. As long as everything works well I'd say it's worth the $75 that the owner is asking for, but I'd still get it tuned up at your LBS.
I don't believer the 29er model came out until 2009.
My advice: Ride it, buy it, tune it up, slap on some fenders, a rack, lights, and some semi-slick tires. Then you'll have a nice commuter that will handle off-road duties as well.
