What sewing machine should I buy? I'm looking for easy and good value for my money.

I'm getting my first sewing machine. Could someone who knows these things tell me how to pick a good one? I want something straightforward, sturdy and newbie friendly. I see several machines on the market, but I'm not sure how to figure out, among the knobs, dials and computer controlled stitch patterns, what sort of model is best for my needs.
I am a newbie, with some minor skill hand sewing, who will mostly hem drapes and make PJs for her teddybear. Maybe there will be pirate flag making, and moderate tailoring.
