Default Costs

I have done a couple microarray experiments but am now interested in RNAseq. I am unfamiliar with the technology and would like to know if it's even feasible with my budget. I was confused by a table in the SOLiD brochure that quoted $150/sample??

For two time points, I have three biological replicates with a drug and three without which makes a total of 12 samples. The samples are from a mouse macrophage cell line. I have seen a few core labs offer services for affy chips for between $600 and $800. I want to know if it would cost more or less to do sequencing. By how much? Also, could I use bar codes and only do one or two runs?? I know that prices may vary by quite a bit for a number of reasons, but a ballpark estimate would be helpful. Any information or links to other resources would be great too! Thanks
