Going full suspension

so recently ive been looking into a fs bike. I recently got back into biking and have been riding on my trek hardtail for way to long. after going down some fun technical stuff today and having a guy fly by me on fs i decided that what i want next.
ive been sorta looking at the mongoose otero the bike shop by me is selling it for 680 i think. trying to make room for 2010.
i dont have tons of money to spend but if you could give me any other bikes for under $1500 it would be very nice

It comes as a whole bike. The cheap one has their house brand suspension, the higher ones have fox. It is around a 600 dollar price difference though.
