I need help choosing a digital camera to buy!!!?

There are so many out there: standard, sleek and skinny, advanced, and Digital SLRs

I'm not too interested in standard ones under $150, so i would say my budget would be no more than $275.

First of all, what would be the best camera that looks really good, one that meets my budget and is really skinney and will also be able to provide me with all my photography needs.

Secondly, what would be the best "advanced camera" that i could buy. A camera that is okay if it is a little bit bigger than a sleek camera, but has some extra features that will suite my advanced photography needs.

And thirdly, where would be the best place to purchase my camera?

Details!

Thanks!!!
