Survey: What's Cheap?

I am not what John McCain would consider rich (+$5,000,000 income) or even what Obama considers rich (+$200,000) and spend my dollars carefully, but I do like good design and I do spend a bit more to get quality. I was really excited to see a transformer desk that cost $500 and called it cheap; I am used to an extra zero on things like that. Yet a commenter wrote : "And 500 dollars is cheap in which virtual universe?... unless solutions (and green ones especially) can be 'walmarted' (or more appropriately 'ikead', we are sunk. Its depressing but true." I found that depressing.
