Rocky Mountain slayer sxc90

hello peoples of the sport,

-I'm going to buy a new MTB and after some long thinking i have chosen to get a rocky mountain.
-i looked on the internet and had a look at my bikeshop to decide on whish one to get.
-I've finally made my choice (see picture and specifications) "Slayer SXC 90"
-Rocky's are a bit $$$$ (this one with those specs is arround 5000$)

My question whas : Anyone allready have some experience with this bike or other models ?

-this why i want to make shure that my investment is good and have your opinion about it.

(the use of the bike wil be enduro,good at everything --> managing roads,ssingle tracks,downhills,jumps,..)

thankx for the help

It's a new model so don't expect much feedback. I have, however, heard nothing but good things about it from those who have ridden one on the Rocky Mountain forum over at www.mtbr.com
