good "starter" food processor that works?

I love soaking up y'all's knowledge and would really appreciate some advice on a good food processor that's affordable but effective. I know, I know.. you get what you pay for. Which is why I'm steering clear of the $19.99 variety. I am a poor college student and I work night shifts for $9 an hour, so, no VitaMix for me unfortunately. I don't need anything super-extreme (I have no immediate need to crush lobster shells or grind narwhal horns), just a good, quality food processor that does its job, won't set me back too far, and won't break in two weeks.
Any specific suggestions?
Right -- forgot that. I normally cook for no more than two, and I cook a lot. As often as I can. I've only had one experience with an immersion blender, attempting to puree the ingredients of a curried carrot soup, and didn't have an easy time of it.. maybe I just didn't get the hang of it? Are they at all powerful?
It sounds like a good idea, though. I'll definitely check into it. Any brand suggestions?
I certainly don't need one of those gargantuan, family-sized processors. I don't even have room in my puny little shelves for that.
Did you check places like craigslist? Used processors may not be the greatest thing in the world, but you certainly can buy a better quality unit if it's used versus new.
