The R61 is an excellent choice. If it's in your price range, go for it.

As for "how to assess cheapness", I think it's quite subjective: hardware 
components are pretty much the same for all manufacturers, what really 
changes are build quality and screens. That said, there are people for 
whom 1000EUR is a lot of money, and others for whom it's not much.
