I wouldn't buy a mountain bike unless you are mountain biking. If you are mostly on paved paths and grass and such just having something with clearance for wider tires is a good thing but if you are going to mountain bike expect to spend 1k on up and the more you spend up to a point the better components will be and the more reliable and comfortable the fork will be and you will also get into other more modern mountain bike features that have proven themselves quite useful.
That's a good recommendation. My GF has that bike.
