If everything's in good working order and the bike fits you well, then IMHO that Fuji seems like an okay deal. The components are entry-level, but what do you expect for <$400? I believe (judging by the colour) that it's a 2009 model so you might be able to barter that price down some more.

I have its cousin the Absolute 1.0 and it is a great bike! I don't know if the frames are different, the 3.0 does have lower level components. It should be a solid bike though. My wife has a Fuji as well, they are both well built and while hers is a very different animal (Saratoga 3.0) we are both quite happy with our Fujis.

I have the absolute 4.0. I like it. Good commuter. Not a race bike but for the price range it works well. Good starter bike for someone not sure if they want to pour a lot of money into a bike. I have learned a lot about bikes without destroying a more expensive bike. I will probably get a nicer bike one of these days but I do not regret getting this one. Have almost 6000 miles on it in 3 years. Daily commute have served me well.

Negotiate that price though. Compare to other 3.0's. Be sure it is your size.

It's an unremarkable price on an unremarkable bike. No clue what you want it for, hopefully includes commuting to typing / spelling / articulation lessons.
