Entrey Level DS bike help

Any experience with a Giant Yukon SX or Kona Four? They're about all I can think of for a decent all-round DS bike with a budget of no more than $1800(AUD, prob $1300USD max).

Use is general trails, fairly technical, not out to win XC comps (and not a lot of choice at that price range).

The Giant seems well spec'd for the price, although a tad heavy. I imagine the Kona would be similar if not heavier though? Does anyone know the respective weight? Manufacturers seem reluctant to reveal these days....
