Depends a lot on the type of riding and whether weight or strength is of primary importance

A Hardtail would be much better for that type of riding and for a grand you could get a very good one.

http://www.boardmanbikes.com/mtbfs/fs_team.html  may be a possibilty?

Whilst i'm not overly knowledgable on FS'ers atm, the boardmans seem to be well specced for the $ and what i've read is positive. Pretty sure a couple of people on here are running them too. When i decide to upgrade to a FS (which may be sooner that i originally planned to Tongue) i will definitely give them a look.

No it will be faster if you are just going to comute and ride country parks.

I have a Full Sus for more hardcore riding , but ride my hardtail for comute and country park style riding.

I ride both a hardtail and fs.  It definitely feels different but i love riding them both.  I'd definitely look at a hardtail for that kind of riding.  You can get good ones for well less than your budget too!
