For someone who is not mechanically inclined and doesn't own tools, it's pretty much a no brainer to find a reasonably priced used newer hybrid that someone hardly used.

putting money into an old bike can mount very quickly, especially if a store is doing it.

every case is different. But you still need someone who knows bikes properly to assess a used bike.
good luck
and have fun with your mates if you do go
