7-speed cassette??? What?...why?

At this level of cost, really all the packages are entry level bikes.
Don't pound on it.
It's a comfort bike, probably well suited to your needs.
It will work considerably better than a $200 Walmart generic FS.

A quality suspension fork would be above $200.

A quality HT frame with a better front suspension fork would suit an entry level rider more.

See if the sport grabs you, no need spending lots unless you have the need.
As your skills\ interest in cycling grows -look into more performance level bicycles.
