I have no experience with that particular bike, but Felt makes great bikes. Many shops will sell leftover bikes at a deep discount once the new models come out, but sometimes things like this happen, and they will have a four year old bike (2013s are out now, or close) around.
If it fits you, and you like it, I would buy it right now. I looked at the specs, and $1k for a nice 105 bike, from Felt, is a steal, IMHO. It doesn't look like it has braze-ons for mounting a rack though, if that is important to you, but I may have just missed them. There are ways to get around that, if you get a little creative.
Very nice looking bike.
