Carbon or not, that's a pile of junk.
You could buy a £140 bike with the same spec, but a steel frame, and probably wouldn't notice the difference.
I rode my buddy's carbon Bronson the other week and reaaaally couldn't tell a difference to my Five, obviously the geo felt funny for 5 mins but after that I wasn't blown away. It probably slots up hill easier but I thought it flexed the same and took hits the same. Couldn't really see the upshot and the extra 2k it cost him or whatever.

I can't see me buying a carbon framed mountain bike anytime soon. The way I keep my bikes in the garage, the use of bike racks, the way I use them on the trail I just don't trust the stuff. I've got a carbon road bike but it's not exposed to the same potential hazards.
