Well, Marlon, it's often said that beauty is in the eyes of the beholder. If it's not expensive, then you won't make too big a mistake (if at all) by going with your emotions.
My advice is to think in 3-dimensional terms (with sound, beauty and playability being the 3 dimensions). If it plays and sounds as well as an acoustic guitar costing 2 or 3 times as much and you are determined to have a steel-string acoustic, then... what the hell are you waiting for?
All the best,
