"Not everyone cares about image quality above all else, and it is perfectly reasonable to trade off quality for the convenience of being able to lug a single light piece of equipment with you wherever you go. If this describes your own priorities, then I recommend you purchase a Fuji FinePix F30 (or, at a pinch, a Canon Powershot A620) and get on with your life."

I'd go further and suggest that a person who isn't too bothered about high quality pictures but wants a single light piece of equipment could trade their current mobile phone for a Sony Ericsson K750i which has a 2 megapixel camera capable of reasonable quality pics of adequate resolution to display on a computer screen. What you lose in quality you gain in convenience - one less object to carry around, plus if you carry your mobile around at all times, you will get all of those "this would make a great picture if I had a camera" shots. It's a pretty decent phone too.

So many people just keep their holiday/family photos on the computer and never print them out, so any resolution higher than 2mp is redundant.

Indeed - even a 1600x1200 21-inch LCD still only contains 1.92 million pixels, and the endless numbers of photos out on the web with uncorrected red-eye suggests image quality really isn't that high on most people's agendas anyway.

I just bought a K750i for 199 Euros, but you can flash the BIOS up to a W800i, which is for sale at €349. The 128Mb card, let's you load a good few mp3s also.
