I do a lot of road biking too. When I got into mountain biking about five years ago, I went for a Rockhopper and never regreted it. It's a solid bike. The nice thing about a Rockhopper is the frame is a decent enough quality that it responds to upgrades. Just like a road bike, you can upgrade components, like the wheelset, the fork and other components if you really get into it. I think if you went with a base line entry level bike, you'll be wanting a better bike very fast.
While I've picked up a couple of dual suspension bikes, I still keep the Rockhopper around.
