Did lots of research, went to a bike shop, found one. Now I need your help!

Hey guys! Been bouncing in and out of this forum over the past month. Been waiting to pull a trigger on a bike. Went back and forth on what I wanted but ended up deciding to go with a front fork suspension, mid-grade, used bike for my first round. I will be riding this 30 miles a week for my work commute and then taking it on trails on the weekends. Before I pull the trigger, I want to know if anyone passing by the mountain bike section in the next 24 hours thinks this is a good/bad/fair buy. This will be my first bike that isn't a junker hand-me-down or from Walmart. The bike shop is keeping it in the back until closing time tomorrow.

The price on it is $480.

Since I have ABSOLUTELY no idea what the brands or quality are of parts, I took some pictures of the things that I could think of. Hopefully this is enough for the experienced bikers to give me their 2 cents.

Frame: Specialized Rockhopper (thanks Zephyr11)
Wheels/tires: Not sure, here is a vague pic
Whatever this is: Shimano Acera
Shifter-helper: Shimano Alivio
Shocks: XCM Saslntour
Disk breaks: Avid BB7 (thanks cobba)

Full picture

Final note: the bike is a rental of theirs and has some obvious ware and tear. The frame looks worn, but all the mechanical parts looked perfect

Thanks a ton guys!
