Digital cameras again

Well, having received a virtual gift certificate for a digital
camera (i.e., it's now in the household budget), I'm wondering
which one to get. This is for casual use, so the price needs
to be under US$1000 (and by the more the better).

I rather like the idea of write-to-floppy cameras, since they
produce images that are instantly transportable and don't
require installing download software on a machine nor doing
the cabling thing when you want to upload. Just pop the floppy
and you're there. I think the main drawback is the interval
between shots.

I'm also somewhat in favour of rechargeable batteries over
the buy/use/discard variety. I spent beaucoups bucks on
coppertops one day with a borrowed Casio.

Consumer Reports' top choices are flashcard and disposable-battery
types. I'm looking for good-to-excellent quality mated with
maximum portability. My sister has an older Mavica, but it
falls down a bit on the quality side.

Any suggestions from the assembled techno-mavens?
