There is really no way we can know what kind of bike is best for you. There are several different types of bikes available in the $400 - $700 range, and within each type are many variations.
Complicating things is the very real possibility that the bike that feels best to you now, may not be the best bike for you a year from now if you go out and ride it a lot and get into better condition.
It can be a lot of fun to try them out and most bike shops are very helpful.
In the end make sure you get one that fits you well. Some people buy the bike with the best price and try to make it fit.
