Cost of replacing brakes?

I have a 2009 Pontiac G8 GT that needs new brakes.

I received a quote from the dealership at my last oil change for $900 for a full brake job.

The front was quoted at $448.
The break down was:
$206 - for OEM brake pads
$242 - service: Brake pad installation, Rotor resurfacing, and Rebleed the brake fluid

First, is it recommended that I get the OEM brake pads for my G8? If so, is that a fair price?

Second, I assume I am getting ripped off, how bad? I have someone that could change them, but in that case I would probably have to buy new rotors so I want to understand how much I'd be saving if I paid my friend for their time (like $150).

Thanks!
