Affordable range? Gas? Electric? Please help!

I need a range for my new home. It's a starter home that we plan on selling in about five years so we don't want to spend too much money on the appliances.

We have a budget of about $1200 for a range. Ideally, I'd like a gas stove and an electric oven, but our budget (and kitchen layout) doesn't really allow for a gas cooktop + electric wall oven solution. Are there any affordable (but reliable) dual fuels? I haven't really been able to find any.

If you had to pick, would you go with a gas range or an electric range? Obviously, gas is better for the stove and electric is better for the oven. I use the stove and oven equally, so I'm not sure what to do.
