We have a very inexpensive (around $100 if you can find it on sale) Gazelle Edge that has served us well for four years or more. You can spend more and get more bells, whistles, and resistance. It's like coach said.... it all depends on you. I'm not a big fan of gyms, but unlike years past when a membership was several hundreds of dollars a year, you can usually find no-frills memberships today for ten dollars a month or so. That gives you the opportunity to try them all and decide what you really want. Sears and Dick's Sporting Goods usually have displays set up where you can try them out and I'm sure there are others, as well. It's a great waste of money to buy an expensive machine that turns into dust collector or coat rack, so choose wisely and make sure it's something you will really use. Good luck!

Any that you will use. Honestly, if you will use it, it will help. If you prefer the elliptical over the treadmill, then that would be better for you. If you prefer the treadmill, then you may want that instead. It's all about your needs and what you are willing to continue to use. There isn't one specific type that is best for everyone. I would recommend starting with looking up reviews online and if there are stores near you that allow you to try them out, then I'd recommend doing that also to see if you even like them or a specific model.
