2004 Jamis Durango SX: Any good?

A friend has been offered this bike (specs below). I'm a road guy, so I don't know, but is this a decent bike for city riding?
New, the owner said he paid $850. What's it worth today?
The catch: the owner is leaving town today, and so a decision has to be reached soon.
Thanks for your help.

I don't know what the guy is asking for it but I would offer 250.00. As for the 27 pounds, that bike would weigh thirty on my scale. I'd love to have the scale the manufacturer is using!
