Hey, I am looking to buy my first board, I've been boarding for about three years now, going up to Falls Creek in Aus at least 5 times a season, had lessons basically every time and been going to the park too. I'm trying to decide between a DC Focus, Tone or Ply. from what I've discovered, the Focus is more of a beginners board and the Ply more all-round? What would you guys suggest?

I weigh 115lbs and i'm 5'7"
Boot size is 9.5
I ride the whole mountain
My budget is $650 for board, boots and bindings

That was my original plan, but all the gear I'm looking at is 50% off, so I can get any of those boards for half price and a pair of DC Scout boots and Burton Freestyle bindings

If you can stretch to the next binding up in the burton line which is the custom I would recommend that you do so - the freestyle has toe straps instead of toe caps which are on the custom. A lot people, me included hate toe straps.
