Next Bike?

As I continue my search for my next mountain bike, I was directed toward this beauty by a good friend of mind. This is a Fezzari Alta Peak (2010 model) available for about $1500 on the web.  For those of you unfamiliar with the Fezzari, it is sweet bike made in Utah and primarily available on line only, unless you live in Utah!  I thought I would share the specs and get some feedback as to whether I should purchase or not. This particular model is not the highest quality of the Fezzari line, but it is one of the top 3.  Any feedback would be awesome.
