Mine is a Kodak DX3600, it was around $150 at Christmas, AFAIR. It's a bit "old" but was reviewed by Consumer Reports and they thought it took clearer pics than several cameras with much higher megapixels. I bet it can be found very cheap now because it's an earlier model.
On the megapixel issue, i don't think most people will really use anything over 2 unless they are going to publish or something. I usually keep mine on the 900x600 setting, and end up cropping and resizing to put pics up online, anyway.
If you want to see the kind of pics it takes, check out the photos on NECPS, because i took most of them with it.
If you want to know more, let me know.
