For a clean looking Glass/Metal French Press - You can score a Bodum Chambord 4-Cup Coffee Press for around $30. Bodum is good, as the glass/metal combo is strong, long lasting, easier to clean than the plastic ones. Also, being a Bodum brand, if/when you break the glass, it's easy to buy replacements.
For something a little cooler though, my pick is a - AeroPress Coffee and Espresso Maker. These make a truly impressive tasting coffee, and you can pick one up on Amazon for around $26.00.
